The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Geometry & Learning from Data" workshop in Oaxaca, from October 24 to October 29, 2021.

The incredible advances in artificial intelligence applied to images need to be combined with geometric tools to be applied in higher dimensional data and for applications to 3D objects, such as those in Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality environments, data from sensors of self-driving cars, computational anatomy, and other domains of technological applications. In this workshop we will bring together experts from academia, government stakeholders, applied researchers from industry, as well as graduate students and early career scientist to interact and develop novel solutions that apply abstract tools from high dimensional geometry to contribute to the solution of these problems.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
