Geometric Data Analysis Conference, May 20-23, 2019, in the Stevanovich Center for Financial Mathematics, Room 112
This conference brings together experts from around the world in the combination of geometrical or topological methods with probabilistic and statistical ones for the study of data. Different ideas have been found valuable in the handling of different kinds of data, and we hope to promote discussions of what works and what fails, and when and why.
