"Wonderfully erudite, humorous, and easy to read." -- KDNuggets
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.

In Texas they'd say "All hat, no cattle". Buzzwords galore, but not much substance. For a beginning computer science student interested in the general topics involved with the study of computer heuristics, computer learning machines, might be worth a go as a way get started. To get the lay of the land in other words. Of if you have a job interview next week in the field, and need something to talk about. But for those interested in how computer learning is actually done, the practical aspects, the fundamental science, this isn't the book. Like I say, all hat, no cattle.

This is a most excellent book, probably more directed at those interested in, or employed in the area of, computer science, but equally understandable to the general public. Covers the spectrum of machine learning (essentially the bleeding edge of AI today) and Prof. Domingos does a wonderful job delving into the extreme depths of Bayes Theorem! [Just wished he'd mentioned Cornell's Eureqa program, but he still covers a wide range of topics.]
