Data Science Seminars - The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Japan and University of Bristol

Methodologies and applications of geometric data analysis

A new weekly online seminar series

Modern large-scale datasets often exhibit rich geometric structure that is often overlooked in classical methods of analysis, and yet may provide the answer to a number of scientific questions. This series will include theoretical and methodological developments in the area of geometric data analysis, and also practical applications in diverse fields, such as earth sciences, biology, and material science.

This weekly online seminar series is a follow-up to the conference "High-Dimensional Bayesian inference towards quantifying real-world uncertainty" held at the University of Bristol in May 2019, and will bring together academics from the Institute of Statistical Mathematics in Japan and the University of Bristol to foster collaborations in geometric data analysis.
