The Demiurge

We live surrounded by smart machines, indeed there are several algorithms to mimic a mind and provide a machine of intelligence. These magic software are applied in many fields, from finance to medicine. In fact, those algorithms are not new,  the foundation of several of them  were establish in the early 60. However, they are far from being a thinking mind and in fact each one has its own weaknesses that limit them to achieve the complete mimic of a human mind. So, the magic formula has not been written yet. Pedro Domingos talk about all this in his book “The master algorithm“. I strongly recomend the following video were the author makes a brilliant summary about the state-of-the-art in the field and makes an introduction to the master algorithm – the code capable of conceive a real mind. There is no need of any special  knowledge to follow the talk and might motivate you to read the book.
