In this talk, we will discuss a variety of applications of persistent homology. We will begin with a quick overview of some of the classic examples of applications such as sensor networks and natural imagery. Then, we will explore a number of additional applications such as brain arteries, hyperspectral imagery, dynamical systems, and biological aggregations. Throughout, we will discuss methods to combine topological features with machine learning.
