**Abstract:** There are two algorithms which form the backbone of many applications of modern topological data analysis: the Mapper algorithm (Singh, Memoli, Carlsson), and persistent homology (Zomorodian, Carlsson). In this talk I'll introduce both algorithms, talk about the homotopy theory behind them, and give an application of each.
