About this event

Abstract: 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 talk will review recent 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.
