How to give a machine a sense of geometry? There are two aspects of what a sense is: a technical tool and ability to learn to use it. This learning ability is essential. For example we are born with technical ability to detect smells and through our lives we develop it, depending on needs and environment around us. In my talk I will describe how to use homology to give a machine a sense of geometry.
