Colloquium

The colloquium of the Center for Mathematical Sciences, Lund University, normally runs once a month, Wednesdays from 14.15 until 15.15 in the Hörmander or Gårding lecture halls. It is aimed at the entire Centre for Mathematical Sciences with overview talks by renowned experts about exciting mathematical topics. The purpose of our colloquium is twofold: firstly, it is to provide an inspiring overview of a specific field of mathematics, secondly, it is to bring together students and staff from the entire department and to serve as the proverbial waterhole where contacts are made and maintained. For more information, see the guidelines for colloquium speakers.

The colloquium is organized by Dragi Anevski, Ida Arvidsson, Magnus Goffeng, Gustavo Jasso and Tony Stillfjord. Feel free to contact any one of us for questions or suggestions for colloquia speakers. See also the information for suggesting colloquium speakers.

Title

Algebra & Geometry in Data Science & AI

Abstract

Analyzing big and structured data and understanding modern AI tools require a vast interdisciplinary mathematical toolbox. An intricate geometry governs most data science applications and optimization tasks. This talk highlights how nonlinear algebra can be used to investigate these geometric structures. The tools we discuss are algebraic geometry at heart but driven by applications and interactions with other mathematical disciplines. The applications we focus on in this talk are machine learning with neural networks, 3D reconstruction in computer vision, and maximum likelihood estimation in statistics.
