Technion -- Meyer (Electrical Engineering) 861
 
Speaker: Prof. Robert Adler, Department of Electrical Engineering,
         Technion
 
Title:   Statistical Inference via Homology
 
Abstract: In this (review) talk I will describe the interplay between
statistical inference and topological data analysis.
In particular, I will describe the now classic results of Niyogi,
Weinberger and Smale on learning homology from random samples, and
describe what this has to do with manifold learning (functional data
analysis) and statistical clustering techniques.
I will also discuss recent approaches to statistical analysis via
persistent homology, and some of the challenges that this poses for
statistics and probability.
