Overview

The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World by Pedro Domingos

"Wonderfully erudite, humorous, and easy to read." —KDNuggets


In the world's top research labs and universities, the race is on to invent the ultimate learning algorithm: one capable of discovering any knowledge from data, and doing anything we want, before we even ask. In The Master Algorithm, Pedro Domingos lifts the veil to give us a peek inside the learning machines that power Google, Amazon, and your smartphone. He assembles a blueprint for the future universal learner—the Master Algorithm—and discusses what it will mean for business, science, and society. If data-ism is today's philosophy, this book is its bible.
