Hirotugu Akaike 90th Birthday Google Doodle
Who was Hirotugu Akaike? Today Google search engine celebrating 赤池弘次 Hirotugu Akaike’s 90th Birthday, He Hirotugu Akaike was a famous Japanese statistician. In the early 1970s he formulated a criterion for model selection. The Akaike information criterion, which is now widely using and a new look at the statistical model identification.
In 2006 Akaike was awarded the Kyoto Prize for his major contribution to statistical science and modeling in the development of the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC). On the 5th of November 2017 Google showed a Doodle for Hirotugu Akaike’s 90th Birthday.
Dr. Akaike’s 赤池弘次 experience was the core of creativity For example to get a “direct feel of random vibration” he bought a scooter and took it around Mt. Fuji. This first experience helped to distinguish vibrations when you got on a road with heavy tracks with regular trucks.

Based on the findings obtained by time series analysis and factor analysis engaged by the 1960 ‘s, Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) which is a general method for model selection was announced.
In 2006 Akaike 赤池弘次 awarded the Kyoto Prize for his major contribution to statistical science. And modeling in the development of the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC).
Finally, this method was subsequently widely using as a standard method of model selection. And, brought about a number of theoretical developments such as extension to the Bayesian framework. So, his paper in 1974 “A new look at the statistical model identification”is one of the most citing documents in the field of engineering and technology.
