Topological Data Analysis is a promising field in data analysis. Indeed, the hypothesis made on the data are much weaker than the hypothesis behind “usual” machine learning algorithms. Quarantine may be a great time for learning it ;)
This list is not exhaustive, I may have missed important resources. If so, please let me know in the comments!

A private company, Ayasdi has published many videos on the topic. Most of them are related to real world applications of TDA.
- Machine Intelligence for Banks
- Topological Data Analysis: How Ayasdi used TDA to Solve Complex Problems
And their youtube channel has many others.
- scikit-tda is a recent (first commit in July 2018) addition to scikit
