Feature Extraction and Selection Using Topological Data Analysis

Presented by Data Analytics and Information Systems
March 19, 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Ashis G. Banerjee, Ph.D., assistant professor, University of Washington

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.
