Raw data are to computers what nervous systems are to our brain, it is the only way to relate to the world.

As much as the human nervous system has evolved, the way a computer extracts information from data is still a very young science and algorithms require additional senses” to see a particular type of information.

Our research program is dedicated to designing an architecture of senses inspired by algebra and topology that give the algorithm a new take on the data.

We extend the eyesight of the algorithm by calibrating it to geometric information, that describes no longer the points themselves, but a much more interesting information: the relation between the data points. 

Our scientific journey is a joint venture with the prestigious Laboratory of Topology and Neuroscience led by Professor Kathryn Hess at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where we continuously exchange talent and knowledge.
