Most Person Know What is Google but some people know who is Larry Page. Larry Page is a Co-Founder of Google.
Lawrence “Larry” Page was born on March 26,1973 in East Lansing, Michigan. His Father Carl Page was pioneer in computer science and artificial intelligence. and Larry Mother Gloria is also a computer science professors at Michigan State University. Larry Page’s parents were both computer experts, so it was no surprise that he studied computer engineering at Stanford University.
At an early age, Larry already had an interest in technology. At the age of two, he attended Montessori Radmoor which was the former Okemos Montessori School. This school’s approach to learning is somewhat unusual as it is based on kids educating themselves in a well charted setting. and then Page earning a bachelor of science degree in engineering from the University of Michigan in 1991.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in computer engineering from the University of Michigan with honors and a Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University. While at the University of Michigan, Page created “an inkjet printer made of Lego bricks” (actually a line plotter), served as the president of the Eta Kappa Nu honor society in Fall 1994, and was a member of the 1993 “Maize & Blue” University of Michigan Solar Car team.
After enrolling in a Computer Science Ph.D. program at Stanford University, Page was in search of a dissertation theme and considered exploring the mathematical properties of the WWW, understanding its link structure as a huge graph. His supervisor Terry Winograd encouraged him to pursue this idea, which Page later recalled as “the best advice I ever got”. Larry then focused on the problem of finding out which web pages link to a given page, considering the number and nature of such backlinks to be valuable information about that page, with the role of citations in academic publishing in mind. In his research project, nicknamed “BackRub” and eventually was named Google, he was soon joined by Sergey Brin, a fellow Stanford Ph.D. student.
To convert the backlink data gathered by BackRub’s web crawler into a measure of importance for a given web page, Brin and Page developed the PageRank algorithm, and realized that it could be used to build a search engine far superior to existing ones. It relied on a new kind of technology that analyzed the relevance of the back links that connected one Web page to another. In August 1996, the initial version of Google was made available, still on the Stanford University Web site.
After raising $1 million from family, friends and other investors, the pair launched the company in 1998. Google has since become the world’s most popular search engine, receiving more than 200 million queries each day. Headquartered in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, Google held its initial public offering in August 2004, making Page and Brin billionaires. Page continues to share responsibility for Google’s day-to-day operations with Sergey Brin and CEO Eric Schmidt. In 2006, Google purchased the most popular Web site for user-submitted streaming videos, YouTube, for $1.65 billion in stock.
