After synchronisation, the course focuses on data analytics, by starting from low-level issues like memory layouts and their interaction with query operators and finally moves towards well-established scale-out platforms like Hadoop and Spark.

Cognitive approach to NLP (TPT-SD-213)

Go to course webpage. This course is taught by Jean-Louis Dessalles.

Processing language is one of the most important and most challenging issues of Artificial Intelligence. NLP comes in two flavours. Many current approaches to language processing are based on large collections of texts. Statistics and machine learning provide quite good predictions about syntax, meaning and intentions. By contrast, symbolic approaches to NLP give priority to the analysis of structures and to exact computation. Often inspired by cognitive analyses, symbolic NLP takes the word "processing" literally: the ultimate goal is to reproduce computations that human individuals are supposed to perform when talking relevantly. Content: Basic parsing methods. Knowledge representation – Meaning representation – Procedural semantics – Aspect. Relevance, argumentation.

Topological Data Analysis (X-INF556)

Go to course webpage. This course is taught by Steve Oudot.

Objectives : Topological Data Analysis is an emerging trend in exploratory data analysis and data mining. It has known a growing interest and some notable successes in the recent years. The idea is to use topological tools to tackle challenging data sets, in particular data sets for which the observations lie on or close to non­trivial geometric structures that can fool classical techniques. Topological methods are indeed able to extract useful information about these geometric structures from the data, and to exploit that information to enhance the analysis pipeline. The objective of this course is to familiarize the students with this new topic lying at the confluence of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and computer science. Emphasis is put on the methods and on their theoretical guarantees. Meanwhile, the lab sessions focus on challenging data sets, primarily multimedia data sets such as collections of images or 3d shapes. Content : The course is divided into nine lectures and nine exercise or lab sessions. These cover the main mathematical concepts and algorithmic tools involved in topological data analysis. The topics covered include: dimensionality reduction and its limitations, hierarchical versus density-based clustering, simplicial and singular homology, persistence theory, topological inference for data exploration, topological signatures for data classification, Reeb graphs and Mapper.
