Seminar Geometry and Topology in Deep Learning

With machine learning making increasing use of foundational principles from geometry and topology, this seminar provides a glimpse into the state of the art. We will discuss architectures and use cases of models leveraging both geometry and topology to address complex tasks, including graph classification, graph regression and general shape analysis.

Learning Outcomes

The primary goal of this seminar is for students to learn how to approach cutting-edge literature in machine learning research. Students will learn how to read and analyse papers, followed by a brief report on a specific body of work. Moreover, students will be given the opportunity to (re)implement methods described in the paper, using a programming language of their
choice. Successful participation in this seminar will enable students to undertake small guided research on their own.
