Machine learning and its evolution

Machine learning algorithms are becoming more “intelligent” and replacing people in many tasks. What’s next?

When (not if) Machine learning will create a superintelligence, then how we will deal with it? How do we control it? How do we avoid to become extinct because of that? Read Nick Bostrom’s book, Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies

Is there a unifying algorithm in Machine Learning? Read Pedro Domingos’ book, The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World

And while algorithms are increasingly used, they have bias and problems that must be taken into account, see Artificial Intelligence’s White Guy Problem

Some good books on Genetics

I enjoyed reading the Ancestor’s tale, by Dawkins, excellent book on our ancestors and how we got here where we are now.


Another good book, Life’s Greatest Secret: The Race to Crack the Genetic Code” by Matthew Cobb



And looking forward to reading, The Gene, An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee.
