Clustering Seminar
Dimensionality Reduction via tSNE - The mathematical theory and the remaining challenges

Abstract: tSNE has become the standard method of dimensionality reduction in the medical sciences (clustering cell types, gene expressions, etc.); amusingly (or maybe not amusingly), the mathematical theory did not exist until recently. Even a basic understanding of the mathematics immediately implies a series of improvements -- I will survey the existing arguments and discuss a number of interesting problems; given the prevalence of tSNE in medicine, even small improvements can affect a lot of research within a very short period of time. Joint work with George Linderman.
