3 units

Letter or Credit/No Credit

Mathematical and computational tools for the analysis of data with geometric content, such images, videos, 3D scans, GPS traces -- as well as for other data embedded into geometric spaces. Linear and non-linear dimensionality reduction techniques. Graph representations of data and spectral methods. The rudiments of computational topology and persistent homology on sampled spaces, with applications. Global and local geometry descriptors allowing for various kinds of invariances. Alignment, matching, and map/correspondence computation between geometric data sets. Annotation tools for geometric data. Geometric deep learning on graphs and sets. Function spaces and functional maps. Networks of data sets and joint learning for segmentation and labeling. Prerequisites: discrete algorithms at the level of CS161; linear algebra at the level of Math51 or CME103.
