Events of my interest

  • KDWeb 2016, 2nd International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Cagliari (Italy), 8-10 September 2016.
    • Presentation by Luca Tesei of the work “Survey of TOPDRIM applications of Topological Data Analysis” by Matteo Rucco, Adane Letta Mamuye, Marco Piangerelli, Michela Quadrini, Luca Tesei and Emanuela Merelli. Abstract: Every moment of our daily life belongs to the new era of “Big Data”. We continuously produce, at an unpredictable rate, a huge amount of heterogeneous and distributed data. The classical techniques developed for knowledge discovery seem to be unsuitable for extracting information hidden in these volumes of data. Therefore, there is the need to design new computational techniques. In this paper we focus on a set of algorithms inspired by algebraic topology that are known as Topological Data Analysis (TDA). We briefly introduce the principal techniques for building topological spaces from data and how these can be studied by persistent homology. Several case studies, collected within the TOPDRIM (Topology driven methods for complex systems) FP7-FET project, are used to illustrate the applicability of these techniques on different data sources and domains.
    • Emanuela Merelli, Michela Quadrini and Marco Piangerelli gave a Tutorial on “Topological Data Analysis with jHoles and Persistent Entropy
  • Organization and Participation as Co-chair to DataMod 2016 5th International Symposium “From Data to Models and Back, formerly known as MoKMaSD, Vienna, 8 July 2016, satellite event of STAF 2016.
  • Participation to the ICT COST Action IC1405 meeting at Bologna, 5-6 July 2016. The COST Action is about Reversible Computing, an interesting area of (not only) theoretical computer science. I participated with Francesco Tiezzi, who presented two works, one at the COST meeting and one at the RC Conference.
