PhD thesis: The Role of Hubness in High-dimensional Data Analysis

November 24th, 2013 Comments off

On December 18th, 2013 – I am scheduled to present my PhD thesis titled “The Role of Hubness in High-dimensional Data Analysis”.

The thesis discusses the issues involving similarity-based inference in intrinsically high-dimensional data and the consequences of emerging hub points. It integrates the work presented in my journal and conference papers, proposes and discusses novel techniques for designing nearest-neighbor based learning models in many dimensions. Lastly, it mentions potential practical applications and promising future research directions.

I would like to thank everyone who gave me advice and helped in shaping this thesis.

The full text of the thesis is available here.
