    Long story short, I get the chance to do another masters

    I'll be programming in Java. Currently, I just have 4 years MatLab experience from my physics degree (now fading out of my memory), with a few semesters of Java, so this would be a good chance to build my java experience

    Currently thinking of:
    -extending old two week projects I did/could have done, which seem fun (motion tracking,face recognition,colour blindness/coloour temperature,etc)
    -perhaps rehash old year long projects I did (game theory-modelling el farol bar problem, digital signal processing of hamster ultrasound audio)
    -Part of me really wants to do something related to data science/machine learning/AI/or finance (since I'm currently working/learning in finance)

    The gleam in my eyes when I hear the words 'data science', 'machine learning' and 'AI' may just be due to a combination of ignorance of the field with child-like optimism that some day I will make my own Optimus Prime. That said, it would be cool to do a related project.

    It seems the only real constraint I have is that it needs to be complex enough for a year long masters project. My main worries are regarding whether I will love it enough to keep the passion for a year onwards and whether it will be complex enough for me to hit my goal of getting that first class grade
