The Workshop on Topological Interacting Computation aims to contribute to the Future Tech Week with the FET project TOPDRIM story and its visionary scientific research. Related scientific topics investigated by outstanding researchers enrich the workshop with further ideas. The workshop is organized in three sessions and one intermezzo between the first two.
The first session starts telling you why studying Topology and defining Topological Methods for Complex Systems (TOPDRIM), and it continues with two seminars on the main TOPDRIM results with the focus on its interdisciplinary aspects.
The second session provides a broad overview of the on-going research topics both in computational topology and theoretical computer science which have in common the need of a new maths. It faces the issues ensued by the non-linearity of complex systems which are very close to the general theory of machine learning in the era of Big Data.
The third session is for Citizens being the workshop organized during the European Researchers' Night. The protagonists of the night are young researchers spaeking with citizens. Young scientistis who were involved at different levels in TOPDRIM project make an effort to show how is so important to have space for studiyng foundational scientific issues whose impact, even if not immediately, will change the quality of human life. They try to convice people in the street that their life can improve just by beliving and participating in what the researchers are doing in their labs.
Young scientists use a scientific language that anyone can understand.
Between the first and second sessions, a story tells us the connection between the first International School of Physics on "Teoria degli automi", held in Ravello in 1964 and the birth of the European Association of theoretical computer science (EATCS). It is interesting to recall that the TCS was born in an iterdisciplinary context of physicists, mathematicinas and researchers from industrial computing labs, and wonder if today we are experiencing something similar.
TOPDRIM is one of the nine projects funded by FET-Proactive DyM-CS (Dynamics of Multi-level Complex Systems) program. It has been an extraordinary program that allowed the study of fundamentals of the emerging technology that link Data Science to Artificial Intelligence. The researchers involved in TOPDRIM were free to explore and define new algebraic and computational methods to discover new knowledge from data. The main result was conceived in the definition of a new methodology in data mining. Today, a group of scientists contaminated by the vision of TOPDRIM is inspiring new research methods in epidemiology, neuroscience, life science, financial, robotics and etc. Other researchers are still challenging conjectural questions for the birth of a new theory supporting the machine learning paradigm.
FET is the only program that supports the growth of interdisciplinary research groups and leaves them the freedom to brace themselves to face challenging hard research problems
