Topological Data Analysis for the Working Data Scientist

  • April 23, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Join us at Trulia for an extension of the outstanding talk that Anthony Bak gave last year.

Abstract
This meetup is a continuation of the two Introduction to Topological Data Analysis (TDA) meetups done last year. Anthony will begin with a short review of the Mapper algorithm and discuss how to think about problems in the topological framework. Through a series of examples he will show how TDA extends and improves many existing data analysis techniques in both supervised and unsupervised settings, discuss how it can be used to correct machine learning models, and if time permits how it offers the ability to create unique topological models.

Schedule 
6:30 - 7:00pm Social (food + beer served) 
7:00 - 8:30pm Talks 
8:30 - 9:00pm Social

    Ack! I just got an email saying I got off the wait list & it's too late to get there in time. Bummer! So here's one more spot opening up again, I can't make it in time. Thanks but hopefully I can get in next time!

    Myself and a couple other (potential) first-timers are looking to get off the wait list. If you're not planning on going could you please un-RSVP? It would be greatly appreciated :D

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
