Manifold Learning

How can we detect low dimensional structure in high dimensional data?  Sam and I worked feverishly on this problem for a number of years.  We were particularly interested in analyzing high dimensional data that lies on or near a low dimensional manifold.  I will describe the algorithm, locally linear embedding (LLE), that we developed for this problem.  I will conclude by relating LLE to more recent work in manifold learning and sketching some future directions for research.
