Utilising Shape in Data.

Abstract:  Modern science and technology generates data at an unprecedented rate. A major challenge is that this data is often complex, high dimensional, and may include temporal or spatial information. The "shape" of the data can be important but it is difficult to extract and quantify. The field of topological data analysis is still quite young. We will give an introduction, present some applications, and discuss theoretical challenges. Beyond basic linear algebra, little previous knowledge will be assumed.
