MIT Researcher Develops Language, With It Creates A Version Of Google PageRank

  • MIT News, Thursday, August 18, 2016 2:48 PM
Fredrik Kjolstad is an MIT graduate student in electrical engineering and computer science and first author on a new paper describing a computer language that automatically switches back and forth between two cause-and-effect scenarios. MIT News reports that Kjolstad says the language has applications outside physical simulation, in machine learning, data analytics, optimization, and robotics. What's most interesting is that he and his colleagues have used the language to implement a version of Google’s original PageRank algorithm for ordering search results, and they’re currently collaborating with researchers in MIT’s Department of Physics on an application in quantum chromodynamic that holds atomic nuclei together.
