Title: “Doing more with less”

Abstract: The area of computer vision – using a computer to examine images and video – is a rapidly advancing field with many mathematical applications.  The goal is to get a computer to perform tasks usually done by humans, so that the tasks can be done faster and at a larger scale.  We will discuss the standard problem of classification of images, and then demonstrate how such problems are aided by dimension reduction.  We show the utility of the Johnson-Lindenstrauss transform to perform dimension reduction with low distortion.

Come one, come all! And of course, there will be pizza.
