Topology is the study of shape, but it is in fact the study of shape from a particular point of view.  For example, it does not distinguish between a perfectly round circle and a circle which has been “squashed” into an ellipse. There are actually three important properties which topological analysis enjoys, and which are […]

Unlike many numerical properties we deal with, shape is a somewhat nebulous concept.  We find that we can recognize similarities between shapes, but we are often unclear about how we recognize it.  Further, we are even more unclear about how we might instruct a machine to recognize and classify shapes.  One of the main tasks […]

Topological Data Analysis (TDA) gives shape to data, and from this shape, insights are found. The Enron data set is no exception.  Leveraging the Ayasdi Platform, we were able to automatically discover groups of interest within Enron’s organization.  The data set consisted of about 516,000 emails, pulled from the Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes […]
