Distance geometry and data science

Data are often represented as graphs. Many common tasks in data science are based on distances between entities. While some data science methodologies natively take graphs as their input, there are many more that take their input in vectorial form. In this survey we discuss the fundamental problem of mapping graphs to vectors, and its … Read more

Calibrating Artificial Neural Networks by Global Optimization

An artificial neural network (ANN) is a computational model – implemented as a computer program – that is aimed at emulating the key features and operations of biological neural networks. ANNs are extensively used to model unknown or unspecified functional relationships between the input and output of a “black box” system. In order to apply … Read more
