Im going into my sophomore year of CS classes and I've been trying to get a research position with CS professors but no one seems interested because I dont have the relevant skills yet. So am I just out of luck until I've taken an ML class or am I just not looking hard enough?
I would contact Dr. Wenyao Xu. He plays a vital role in undergraduate research participation at UB, especially in the summers with his CSE REU. DM me so we can game plan and get you involved.
