                Applications of Matrix Computational Methods in the Analysis of  "Modern Data"


Objectives and Description of the Workshop:

“Modern Data” has unique characteristics such as, extreme sparsity, high correlation, high dimensionality and massive size. Modern data

is very prevalent in all different areas of science such as Medicine, Environment, Finance, Marketing, Vision, Imaging, Text, Web, etc. A 

major difficulty is that many of the old methods that have been developed for analyzing data during the last decades cannot be applied on

modern data. One distinct solution, to overcome this difficulty, is the application of matrix computation and factorization methods such as

SVD (singular value decomposition), PCA (principal component analysis), and NMF (non- negative matrix factorization), without which the

analysis of modern data is not possible. This workshop covers the application of matrix computational science techniques in dealing with

Modern Data.
