> Pedro Domingos, Professor of Computer Science at the University of 
> Washington in Seattle and winner of the SIGKDD Innovation. Gregory

> Discovery in Database (KDD) conferences, and co-founder of ACM SIGKDD,

> There are five main schools of thought in machine learning, and each 
> has its own master algorithm – a general-purpose learner that can in 
> principle be applied to any domain. The symbolists have inverse 
> deduction, the connectionists have backpropagation, the evolutionaries 
> have genetic programming, the Bayesians have probabilistic inference, 
> and the analogizers have support vector machines. What we really need, 
> however, is a single algorithm combining the key features of all of 
> them. In this webinar Pedro Domingos will summarize the five paradigms 
> and describe his work toward unifying them, including in particular 
> Markov logic networks. Pedro will conclude by speculating on the new 
> applications that a universal learner will enable, and how society 
> will change as a result.
> Duration: 60 minutes (including audience Q&A)
> Presenter:
> Pedro Domingos, University of Washington in Seattle; SIGKDD Innovation 
> Award Winner
> Pedro Domingos is a professor of computer science at the University of 
> Washington in Seattle. He is a winner of the SIGKDD Innovation Award, 
> the highest honor in data science. He is a Fellow of the Association 
> for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, and has received a 
> Fulbright Scholarship, a Sloan Fellowship, the National Science 
> Foundation’s CAREER Award, and numerous best paper awards. He 
> received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Irvine and is 
> the author or co-author of over 200 technical publications. He has 
> held visiting positions at Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, and MIT. He 
> co-founded the International Machine Learning Society in 2001. His 
> research spans a wide variety of topics in machine learning, 
> artificial intelligence, and data science, including scaling learning 
> algorithms to big data, maximizing word of mouth in social networks, 
> unifying logic and probability, and deep learning.
> Moderator:
> Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro, KDnuggets; SIGKDD Co-Founder
> Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro is President of KDnuggets, which provides
