Description

 

This course presents an introduction of computational and data-driven methods for conducting graduate-level research in engineering. The theme of the course centers around scientific learning, approached as an inverse problem. We will investigate non-probabilistic, probabilistic, and data-driven approaches for solving and accelerating the solution of inverse problems. These will entail topics of classification and regression with regularization and cross-validation; Bayesian inference using Markov chain Monte Carlo and variational Bayes; data-driven modeling with polynomial chaos, Karhunen-Loeve expansions, Gaussian processes, and neural networks. Lastly, we will introduce strategies for “what new data shoud we acquire?” via statistical experimental design, as well as active and reinforcement learning.
