I've been trying to develop a more coherent strategy for Google...in other words, something I could actually expect to work.
And, since the Altavista papers regarding the term vector database helped me so much when I "arrived here", I was thinking, don't the founders of google have papers they've written somewhere?
I looked at stanford, but the links are broken/ and or don't exist...does any one have any leads about documents they might have written while there? They were doctoral students, yes? And google was a research project first...google.stanford.edu, right?
Any leads would be greatly appreciated. For some morbid reason, I like reading papers like the ones from trec 9.
Thank you...that second one was very good. The links on his page were broken when I checked.
The other one, though. That paper was incredible! I love the way they spell out the algorithm, and their thoughts for future development...if they can pull off a lot of it, which seems pretty reasonable, google should get even better.
I am wondering, though. Can anyone give me a pointer into a place where I could actually figure out a little better how the pagerank function they give works?
