On Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. Interview with Pedro Domingos
In June, Prof Zicari had the pleasure of interviewing Pedro Domingos, professor of computer science at the University of Washington and the author of “The Master Algorithm“, a bestselling introduction to machine learning for non-specialists. They talked about various topics related to Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning.
“Debugging AI systems is harder than debugging traditional ones, but not impossible. Mainly it requires a different mindset, that allows for nondeterminism and a partial understanding of what’s going on. Is the problem in the data, the system, or in how the system is being applied to the data? Debugging an AI is more like domesticating an animal than debugging a program.” – Pedro Domingos

Computing functionality is ubiquitous. Today this logic is built into almost any machine you can think of, from home electronics and appliances to motor vehicles, and it governs the infrastructures we depend on daily — telecommunication, public utilities, transportation. Maintaining it all and driving it forward are professionals and researchers in computer science, across disciplines including:
- Computer Architecture and Computer Organization and Design
- Data Management, Big Data, Data Warehousing, Data Mining, and Business Intelligence (BI)
- Human Computer Interaction (HCI), User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI), Interaction Design and Usability
- Artificial intelligence (AI)
