Pure Maths Colloquium: Topological Computer Vision

Presented by Vitaliy Kurlin, Durham

23 November 2015 16:00 in CM107

Topological Computer Vision is a new research area within Topological Data Analysis on the interface between algebraic topology and computational geometry. The flagship method of persistent homology quantifies topological structures hidden in unorganised data across all scales. The earlier talk at the statistics seminar on Monday 23 November at 2pm in CM 221 will be a non-technical introduction to potential collaboration projects with statisticians. The talk at the pure colloquium on Monday at 4pm in CM 107 will review applications to Computer Vision including auto-completion of contours, parameterless skeletonisation and superpixel segmentation of images. The last work is joint with Microsoft Research Cambridge and was funded by the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account through a Knowledge Transfer Secondment.
