Uncertainty Quantification in Dynamical Systems

Alessandro Davide Ialongo (Ph.D. Student)

Many real-world systems are not static, they evolve through time. Modelling them as dynamical systems enables us to correctly account for non-stationarity and is a natural choice for sequential datasets. Especially in the low data regime, correctly quantifying predictive uncertainty is crucial to ensure we do not take overly optimistic decisions. In my PhD I have been developing techniques to apply Gaussian processes to sequential data and am now interested in applying these methods to tackle challenges in robotics. The aim is to achieve robust and data efficient robotic locomotion and manipulation.
