An algorithm, in its most basic form is an equation that given inputs, outputs a value. Algorithms are everywhere along with advanced machine learning. Google uses algorithms, so does Netflix and Amazon. The remarkable thing that happened last year with algorithms and machine learning was when a computer program beat one of the best Go players in the world. Go is the pinnacle of human invented games. There are more Go board configurations than there are atoms in the universe, so the computer could not simply calculate every possible move like in chess. What is the next step for machines? Turing theorized that a machine could eventually be capable of answer or solving any problem. This is what I would like to research for my research project, but there is a problem. Algorithms in machine learning is not simple. It usually is graduate level. Anyone know where I can get good information on algorithms. I haven’t read a periodical that I have understood well.
