Title: Optimal Transport on Surfaces, Graphs, and Point Clouds
Speaker: Justin Solomon (MIT)
Abstract: Dating back to early economic applications, the optimal transport (OT) problem has received renewed interest thanks to its applicability to problems in machine learning, computer graphics, geometry, and other disciplines. The main barrier to wide adoption of OT as a modeling tool is the expense of optimization in OT problems. In this talk, I will summarize efforts in my group to make large-scale transport tractable over a variety of domains and in a variety of application scenarios, helping transition OT from theory to practice.
