"Domingos, a noted professor of computer science at the University of Washington, explains how machine learning is changing the world. He writes that more and more, algorithms learn from our digital trails and they observe, imitate and experiment. He is the winner of the SIGKDD Innovation Award, the highest honor in data science." 

The Master Algorithm:
How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning
Machine Will Remake Our World
Machine learning is the automation of discovery—the scientific method on steroids—that enables intelligent robots and computers to program themselves. 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. 

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.
