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.



機器學習是發現的自動化——是科學方法的超級版——它使智能機器人和計算機能夠自我編程。今天沒有任何科學領域比機器學習更重要,但同時也更神秘。Pedro Domingos是這個領域的領軍人物之一,他首次揭開了神秘的面紗,讓我們一窺Google、Amazon和你的智能手機所使用的學習機器的內部。他通過機器學習的五個主要思想流派,展示了它們如何將神經科學、進化、心理學、物理學和統計學的思想轉化為能夠為你服務的演算法。他逐步構建了未來通用學習者——Master Algorithm的藍圖,並討論了它對你、商業、科學和社會的意義。

如果數據主義是當今的崛起哲學,這本書將成為它的聖經。通往通用學習的探索是有史以來最重要、最迷人和最革命性的智力發展之一。作為一本開創性的書籍,《The Master Algorithm》是任何想要理解革命將如何發生以及如何站在前沿的人的必讀指南。
