2021-07: Discriminative Representation for Topological Data Analysis

Date: 30/07/2021, 10-11am, Friday Title: Discriminative Representation for Topological Data Analysis Abstract: Topological data analysis (TDA) extracts the topological features that are complementary to statistical quantities, which has been found in many applications in computer vision. In TDA, the persistence diagram (PD) is a favored tool for describing topological features, such as the shape of […]
