Two applications of Riemannian geometry: Thermal stresses in solid mechanics and density preserving maps in machine learning.

Research Horizons Seminar

1 hour (actually 50 minutes)

Georgia Tech Research Institute
I will present two "real life" applications of Riemannian geometry,one in the field of continuum mechanics, another in the field ofmachine learning (nonlinear dimensionality reduction). I will providequick introductions in order to make the talk accessible to anaudience with no background in either field.
