Maria Sacchi Reading, Umberto Boccioni, 1907
Daily Thoughts 10/12/2015
The library was closed today for Columbus day.
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I also placed an order for books. There was a new book by Michael Strahan in the New York Post, Wake Up Happy: The Dream Big, Win Big Guide to Transforming Your Life. Sometimes books are shown where you might not expect them.
I read some more of The Master Algorithm. Some of it goes right past. It is a mix of philosophy, computer science, popular science, brain science, and a lot of other little things. On page 25, the author, Pedro Domingos states his thesis. All knowledge, past, present, and future-- can be derived from data by a single, universal learning algorithm. It is a very ambitious idea.
I am reading about the idea that learning algorithms can be derived from studying the brain. This article recently came out. Rat brain reconstructed in a computer. This shows there will be some advances in machine learning soon. http://news.yahoo.com/rat-brain-reconstructed-computer-193342563.html
