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.

"Pedro Domingos demystifies machine learning and shows how wondrous and exciting the future will be."--Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators
PRAISE FOR THE HARDCOVER: "An impressive and wide-ranging work that covers everything from the history of machine learning to the latest technical advances in the field... Domingos' book is a rare chance to glimpse the inner workings of this priesthood [of scientists] as they seek to create something greater than themselves." -Daily Beast "Wonderfully erudite, humorous, and easy to read." -KDNuggets "[The Master Algorithm] does a good job of examining the field's five main techniques...The subject is meaty and the author...has a knack for introducing concepts at the right moment." -The Economist
