The Master Algorithm

How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World

Pedro Domingos

'Pedro Domingos demystifies machine learning and shows how wondrous and exciting the future will be' Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

Society is changing, one learning algorithm at a time, from search engines to online dating, personalized medicine to predicting the stock market. But learning algorithms are not just about Big Data - these algorithms take raw data and make it useful by creating more algorithms. This is something new under the sun: a technology that builds itself. In The Master Algorithm, Pedro Domingos reveals how machine learning is remaking business, politics, science and war. And he takes us on an awe-inspiring quest to find 'The Master Algorithm' - a universal learner capable of deriving all knowledge from data.
