SUMMARY:Public Lecture\, AMSI Summer School
DESCRIPTION:Event: Public Lecture\nTitle: Quantifying Differences in Shape via Algebraic Topology\nSpeaker: Katharine Turner\, ANU\nDate/Time: Wednesday 10 January 2024; 12–1.30pm AEDT\nLocation: China in the World\, Building 188\, Fellows Road\, ANU\nWebsite: https://rhed.amsi.org.au/public-lectures/quantifying-differences-in-shape-via-algebraic-topology/ \nTalk Abstract\nHomology is an algebraic invariant of the topology of a space. A single homology measurement cannot distinguish subsets of Euclidean space that are topologically the same but geometrically different. However\, by considering a parameterised families of growing subsets of a shape and how the homology evolves over this families (called persistent homology) we can bridge between the topological and geometric. I will talk about how we can use persistent homology to construct a metric between different subsets of Euclidean space and give some examples of applications from classification of serif from sans serif fonts\, to disease prognosis of brain tumours.
