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

By Pedro Domingos
A thought-provoking and wide-ranging exploration of machine learning and the race to build computer intelligences as flexible as our own
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
