Mustafa Hajij Receives $212,506 Award from the National Science Foundation
Mustafa Hajij with the Mathematics and Computer Science Department has received a $212,506 award from the National Science Foundation to support his project entitled "Collaborative Research: A Unifying Deep Learning Framework Using Cell Complex Neural Networks".
This project proposes (i) to unify and deepen our understanding of deep learning on structured topological and combinatorial data; (ii) to use the topological data analysis tools to better characterize deep networks in terms of overfishing, generalization, and transferability. In the light of these established theoretical foundations, we offer practical methods to expand the applicability of topological and combinatorial deep learning and ultimately leverage them to understand deep learning itself. This project interlaces theoretical and experimental findings with their mutual reinforcement through three main objectives.
