Basic Books, 22 sep. 2015 - 352 pagina's
Recommended by Bill Gates

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.
