For this MSDSlab, Johnny van Doorn (PhD student at UvA) joined us to give a talk about PageRank. This comes from a talk he gave for a similar group in Amsterdam. Johnny discussed the main idea behind Google’s groundbreaking algorithm and go into some detail on how it can be estimated, from the point of view of a statistician.
