Machine Learning: The New Infrastructure for Everything

The first half of the information age was programming computers to do what we want. In the second half of the information age computers will program themselves. Over the last 30 years, coding capabilities grew at a phenomenal rate topped only by the amount of data being produced and the complexity of the problems we face. Enter the rise of machine learning–programming computers to learn from data. With a good machine learning algorithm more data means more learning. Pedro Domingos of the University of Washington thinks of machine learning as the practical subset of artificial intelligence–the new hub of efforts to add intelligence to every facet of life. In his new book, The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World , he reminds…
