Today's highest-paid college major will someday hold little value for some employers, according to billionaire investor Mark Cuban.
The value of a computer science degree, often seen as a practical choice of college major, will diminish as artificial intelligence continues to advance, Cuban said in an interview with Recode editor at large Kara Swisher.

Computer science tops the list of the highest-paying college majors with a median base salary of $70,000, according to Glassdoor.
