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 3209. You can contact us at cunygc@appliedtopology.nyc.

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.

Schedule

Current schedule can be found here.

We will be sending out announcements through a mailing list; you can subscribe here.

Semester start meeting

It is time to kick off the Data Science and Applied Topology seminar for the fall. This semester we will be reading the Topological Data Analysis textbook manuscript by Gunnar Carlsson, Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson and Andrew Blumberg, as well as host research talks within the topic of the seminar.

If you need a copy of the textbook, please contact Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson for details. If you wish to give a talk, please contact any one of the organizers.
