Abstract: The idea of homology turns up in many different areas of mathematics, in various disguises. On the occasion of its appearance in data science (under the name of “persistent homology” or “shape of data”) in this talk we will explore the main underlying arguments and constructions in homology theory, with particular focus on persistent homology. The talk is aimed at mathematicians not familiar with homology (yet).
