Théo LACOMBE (INRIA) – “An Introduction to Topological Data Analysis”
Abstract : Topological Data Analysis (TDA) is a recent approach in Data Sciences that aims to encode some structured objects—think of graphs, time series, points on a manifold for instance—with respect to the topological information they contain. The first half of this introductive lecture will give a high-level picture of TDA. We will then briefly introduce the persistent homology, a notion coming from algebraic topology that is central in TDA to build our topological signatures. Finally, the last part of the talk will present some statistical and learning aspects of TDA.
