DISTANCES IN HIGH DIMENSIONAL PROBLEMS

by

Prof. Marianthi Markatou
Department of Biostatistics
Columbia University


Abstract

What distances are useful for high dimensional data analysis? How is their performance characterized? What are the intrinsic characteristics that drive performance? How does the dimensionality of the data interact and affect performance?

We will discuss these questions and indicate connections of the work with the fields of machine learning and harmonic analysis.
