Abstract/Media

We will trace a personal journey from the study of Geometric Invariant Theory (GIT) to a career in data science which requires daily use of Git, the version control system. Machine learning algorithms for classification also figure prominently in this field. We will briefly survey the most popular algorithms and engage in a relaxed, interactive demo applying these algorithms to classify survivors of the RMS Titanic disaster.
