9780465065707: The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World

Algorithms increasingly run our lives. They find books, movies, jobs, and dates for us, manage our investments, and discover new drugs. More and more, these algorithms work by learning from the trails of data we leave in our newly digital world. Like curious children, 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. Machine learning is the automation of discovery--the scientific method on steroids--that enables intelligent robots and computers to program themselves. No field of science today is more important yet more shrouded in mystery. Pedro Domingos, one of the field's leading lights, lifts the veil for the first time to give us a peek inside the learning machines that power Google, Amazon, and your smartphone. He charts a course through machine learning's five major schools of thought, showing how they turn ideas from neuroscience, evolution, psychology, physics, and statistics into algorithms ready to serve you. Step by step, he assembles a blueprint for the future universal learner--the Master Algorithm--and discusses what it means for you, and for the future of business, science, and society. If data-ism is today's rising philosophy, this book will be its bible. The quest for universal learning is one of the most significant, fascinating, and revolutionary intellectual developments of all time. A groundbreaking book, The Master Algorithm is the essential guide for anyone and everyone wanting to understand not just how the revolution will happen, but how to be at its forefront.

Sinossi:

Under the aegis of machine learning in our data-driven machine age, computers are programming themselves and learning about--and solving--an extraordinary range of problems, from the mundane to the most daunting. Today it is machine learning programs that enable Amazon and Netflix to predict what users will like, Apple to power Siri's ability to understand voices, and Google to pilot cars. These programs are already helping us fight the war on cancer and predict the movements of the stock market, and they are making great headway with instant language translation and discovering new laws of nature. But machine learning is incomplete, and its practitioners across the globe are seeking the most powerful algorithm of all. The Master Algorithm will not be limited to solving particular problems but will be able to learn anything and solve any problem, however difficult, and Pedro Domingos, a trailblazing computer scientist, is at the very forefront of the search for it. With the Master Algorithm in hand and data as its fuel, machine learning--essentially the automation of discovery, a kind of scientific method on steroids--will become the most powerful technology humanity has ever devised. And "The Master Algorithm" will be its bible.

Recensione:

“Domingos writes with verve and passion, and the book has a strong narrative.”
New Scientist

“[ The Master Algorithm] opens the doorway to a world many of us never see or think about, though it has a tremendous impact on our daily lives.”
Shelf Awareness for Readers

“[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

“Wonderfully erudite, humorous, and easy to read.”
KDNuggets

“Domingos is a genial and amusing guide, who sneaks us around the backstage areas of the science in order to witness the sometimes personal (and occasionally acrimonious) tenor of research on the subject in recent decades... This is a highly inclusive book, aimed at a wide range of readers from the merely curious to those who might be interested in pursuing a career in the field. Descriptions and discussions are presented with a commendable lack of jargon and the examples are clear and accessible.”
Times Higher Education

“An exhilarating venture into groundbreaking computer science.”
Booklist, starred review

“Machine learning, known in commercial use as predictive analytics, is changing the world. This riveting, far-reaching, and inspiring book introduces the deep scientific concepts to even non-technical readers, and yet also satisfies experts with a fresh, profound perspective that reveals the most promising research directions. It's a rare gem indeed.”
—Eric Siegel, founder of Predictive Analytics World and author of Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die

“With terms like ‘Machine Learning' and ‘Big Data' regularly making headlines, there is no shortage of hype-filled business books on the subject. There are also textbooks that are too technical to be accessible. For those in the middle—from executives to college students—this is the ideal book, showing how and why things really work without the heavy math. Unlike other books that proclaim a bright future, this one actually gives you what you need to understand the changes that are coming.”
—Peter Norvig, Director of Research, Google and coauthor of Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach

“Starting with the audacious claim that all knowledge can be derived from data by a single ‘master algorithm,' Domingos takes the reader on a fast-paced journey through the brave new world of machine learning. Writing breezily but with deep authority, Domingos is the perfect tour guide from whom you will learn everything you need to know about this exciting field, and a surprising amount about science and philosophy as well.”
—Duncan Watts, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research, and author of Six Degrees and Everything Is Obvious *Once You Know the Answer

“The holy grail of computer science is a machine that can teach itself, as we humans do, from experience. Machine learning could help us do everything from curing cancer to building humanoid robots. Pedro Domingos demystifies machine learning and shows how wondrous and exciting the future will be.”
—Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators

“[An] enthusiastic but not dumbed-down introduction to machine learning... lucid and consistently informative.... With wit, vision, and scholarship, Domingos describes how these scientists are creating programs that allow a computer to teach itself. Readers...will discover fascinating insights.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This book is a sheer pleasure, mixed with education. I am recommending it to all my students, those who studied machine learning, those who are about to do it and those who are about to teach it. The author succeeds not only in presenting an accurate and entertaining journey through the methodological ideas behind machine learning but also in embedding those ideas in a colorful tapestry of philosophical questions concerning the ultimate capacity of man to emulate itself. A must read for both realists and futurists.”
—Judea Pearl, Professor of Computer Science, UCLA and winner of the A. M. Turing Award

Descrizione libro Basic Books. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Hardcover. 304 pages. We live in a data-driven machine age, one where computers are learning how to program themselves and one single algorithm could very well be applied to everything. With data as its fuel, machine learningthe automation of discovery, a kind of scientific method on steroidswill become ever more powerful. If data-ism is the rising philosophy of the day, this book, The Master Algorithm will be its bible. But machine learning is about more than big data: it is about solving the mysteries of intelligence itself. In The Master Algorithm, computer scientist Pedro Domingos not only charts a course through the five major schools of thoughtsymbolist, connectionist, evolutionary, Bayesian, and analogistbut also demonstrates the ways in which theyve all failed at constructing the Master Algorithm; he unveils his own theory, Alchemy, along the way. The quest for the universal learner is one of the most significant, fascinating, and revolutionary intellectual developments of all timeand The Master Algorithm is the essential guide for anyone and everyone wanting to understand not just how the revolution will happen, but how they can make it happen.
