Is this the rise of the robots? Probably not

Pedro Domingos thinks the future is virtual. In his book “The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World,” Domingos explains that one day each person will have a virtual identity that will make decisions and transactions for them, before they even know about it. He says this will be done through the Master Algorithm, which is an all-encompassing computer algorithm that learns to model your thoughts and behaviors. When it comes to using this technology, companies like Google and Amazon are already a few steps ahead of us.  On the Master Algorithm and machine learning: Well, the Master Algorithm is a machine-learning algorithm. And what is machine learning? [Machine learning is when] the computer is not programmed by a human anymore, it just…
