Aspiring Quant at Columbia University

Hey, I'm beginning an MS in Computer Science at Columbia university, with a focus on Artificial Intelligence.  I am going to research learning algorithms, mostly on the mathematical side.  My goal is to become a quant trader, but if that doesn't work out I'll get a developer/engineer role.  I know most of you guys are business school weenies so don't knock me.
