Topological data analysis (TDA) is rapidly emerging as one of the most general-purpose methods for feature extraction and selection in a variety of predictive data analytics applications. Based on the core idea of characterizing topological structures in noisy and high-dimensional data sets using their persistence information, TDA provides a robust framework to yield suitable features.

Damage Assessment on Post-Hurricane Imagery 

Presented by Quality Control & Reliability Engineering
April 16, 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Youngjun Choe, Ph.D., assistant professor, University of Washington - Seattle

Disaster damage assessment in the U.S. is increasingly important as natural hazard-induced disasters (e.g., hurricanes) are breaking records nearly every year, costing the nation hundreds of billions of dollars per year. However, the current practice of disaster damage assessment is largely dependent on humans (e.g., ground surveys) being slow, costly and error-prone.
