MLBytes Speaker Series

Mathematicians of the 20th century developed topology as a tool to study qualitative properties of shapes and surfaces. This talk will introduce some of their ideas and show how they can be used to gain useful insight in binary classification. Following classical theorems, we will obtain a "topologically accurate" reconstruction of class boundaries and hint towards current research. Olivier Binette is a M.Sc. student at Université du Québec à Montréal.
