The CUNY Data Science and Applied Topology Reading Group is joint between the Mathematics and Computer Science programmes. We meet Fridays 11.45 -- 12.45 in GC 4419. You can contact us at email@example.com.
Our plan is to primarily read and discuss seminal papers in data science, in applied topology and in topological data analysis. Each seminar one participant takes the responsibility to present a paper and prepare items for discussion. We expect occasionally to be able to invite external speakers.
Current schedule can be found here.
We will be sending out announcements through a mailing list; you can subscribe here.
- Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson, Computer Science Programme, CUNY Graduate Center; Department of Mathematics, CUNY College of Staten Island
- Azita Mayeli, Mathematics Programme, CUNY Graduate Center; Department of Mathematics, CUNY Queensborough Community College
We have compiled a list of papers that might be interesting to present.
Topology and the Machine Mind
Using standard tools from topological data analysis and basic notions from topology, we explore new ways of understanding how a machine-learning algorithm utilizes the data it is given. This understanding can aid in the computability of a model and offers insight into additional, targeted input for improving its efficacy.
