Abstract:

"Describes the quest to find the Master Algorithm, which will take machine learning to the next level, allowing computers to learn how to solve not just particular problems but any problem, "--Novelist.

Algorithms increasingly run our lives. They work by learning from the trails of data we leave in our newly digital world; they observe us, imitate, and experiment. And 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. Domingos gives us a peek inside the learning machines that power Google, Amazon, and your smartphone, and discusses what it means for you, and for the future of business, science, and society.
