14:00 - 15:00 Combinatorics and Computing Weekly SeminarAlgorithmic Optimal Transport in High Dimensions School MATHEMATICS Optimal transport is the problem of moving a mass of objects from an initial mass distribution to a final mass distribution with minimum cost. The input to the problem is the initial and final distributions, as well as the distance metric or cost of transportation between each initial position and each final position. We should match points in the initial mass with points in the final mass so as to minimize the total cost. This problem was first proposed in the context of economics and recently in the context of machine learning to compare and transform probability distributions. I shall mainly talk about these applications. If I have ... |
