Abstract:

Because we have fully entered the age of big data, it is important that we find ways to explore, summarize, and answer questions with this data. However, sometimes the problem isn't just that the data is big, but that it is complicated. Often, that means it is even too complicated for the standard methods to be useful. In this talk, we will discuss a new collection of tools available from the field known collectively as Topological Data Analysis. We use tools from algebraic topology, linear algebra, and graph theory to ask and answer questions about our data and to provide understanding for the domain sciences from which the data arise.
