Young Scientist Builds a Better Search Engine



Seventeen-year-old Nicholas Schiefer is on his way to developing the next Google search engine for the social-media world. The Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award winner sits down with the WSJ to explain. This kid is obviously very intelligent, and listening to him talk about his idea reminds one of Jobs, Gates, Brin, Zuckerberg, and so many others who helped drive the highly creative and disruptive tech and internet revolution and change the world.
Be prepared for a short discussion on the Markov Chain, a mathematical system that undergoes transitions from one state to another, between a finite or countable number of possible states. Watch this space, and watch the young Mr. Nicholas Schiefer in the coming years!
