Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pedro Domingos demystifies machine learning and shows how wondrous and exciting the future will be."―Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators

"An impressive and wide-ranging work that covers everything from the history of machine learning to the latest technical advances in the field."―Daily Beast

"Domingos writes with verve and passion."―New Scientist

"Unlike other books that proclaim a bright future, this one actually gves you what you need to understand the changes that are coming."―Peter Norvig, Director of Research, Google and coauthor of Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach

"Domingos is the perfect tour guide from whom you will learn everything you need to know about this exciting field, and a surprising amount about sience and philosophy as well."―Duncan Watts, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research, and author of Six Degrees and Everything Is Obvious *Once You Know the Answer

"[The Master Algorithm] does a good job of examining the field's five main techniques.... The subject is meaty and the author...has a knack for introducing concepts at the right moment."―The Economist

"Domingos is a genial and amusing guide, who sneaks us around the backstage areas of the science in order to witness the sometimes personal (and occasionally acrimonious) tenor of research on the subject in recent decades."―Times Higher Education

"An exhilarating venture into groundbreaking computer science." Booklist, starred review

"[An] enthusiastic but not dumbed-down introduction to machine learning...lucid and consistently informative.... With wit, vision, and scholarship, Domingos decribes how these scientists are creating programs that allow a computer to teach itself. Readers...will discover fascinating insights."
Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a must have to learn machine learning without equation. It will help you get the big picture of the several learning paradigms. Finally, the provocative idea is not only intriguing, but also very well argued."―Data Mining Research

About the Author

Pedro Domingos is a professor of computer science at the University of Washington. He is a winner of the SIGKDD Innovation Award, the highest honor in data science. A fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, he lives near Seattle.
