Product description

Review

The holy grail of computer science is a machine that can teach itself, as we humans do, from experience. Machine learning could help us do everything from curing cancer to building humanoid robots. Pedro Domingos demystifies machine learning and shows how wondrous and exciting the future will be (Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators)

Machine learning is a fascinating world never before glimpsed by outsiders. Pedro Domingos initiates you to the mysterious languages spoken by its five tribes, and invites you to join in his plan to unite them, creating the most powerful technology our civilization has ever seen (Sebastian Seung, Professor, Princeton, and author of 'Connectome')

About the Author

Pedro Domingos is one of the world's top machine learning researchers, and a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. He is a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and has received Fulbright and Sloan Fellowships and the National Science Foundation's CAREER Award.
