Albion College Mathematics and Computer Science Colloquium

Title: Data, Data, Everywhere!
Speaker:Michele Intermont
Associate Professor
Department of Mathematics
Kalamazoo College
Kalamazoo, Michigan
Abstract: Everywhere we look these days there seem to be huge piles of data being generated. People collect this data, but how does it get analyzed? Recently, people have begun looking at the branch of mathematics known as topology to help organize and give some shape to data. Applied topology is still a new field, and in this talk, we'll give an introduction to it, as well as to topology itself, and talk about some of the applications.
