Seminar 21/12 – Generative Topographic Mapping – Hugo Rens

For the last STORM seminar before Christmas, Hugo Rens will give a presentation of Generative Topographic Mapping.

During this seminar we will talk about the Generative Topographic Mapping, a reduction dimension technique that provides a mapping from a low-dimensional latent space to the original high-dimensional data space. While I explore this for rendering purpose, the technique goes far beyond that scope. This has multiple interests and applications, and moreover admit many extensions that we will review (we will especially look into its ability to learn by batches of data). We will also quickly establish the link with other techniques, such as Gaussian Process Latent Variable Models (GPLVMs) and Density Nets (DN). 

This seminar will take place the 21/12 at 12:30pm in the Salle des Thèses at IRIT.
