Speaker: Primoz Skraba (INRIA Saclay, France)
This talk will center around persistent homology or simply persistence; an important tool for the analysis of large and high dimensional data sets, especially point clouds. Particularly, the talk will present recent work on applying persistence to the problem of clustering. The algorithm we end up with is practical and comes with theoretical guarantees. On the theoretical side, I will discuss the stability of the persistent clusters and on the practical side I will show how it aids in interpreting data which may be difficult to visualize.
Joint work with Frederic Chazal, Steve Oudot and Leonidas Guibas.
