Industrial Talk by Dr. Christoph Zimmer

Dear members and friends of the Heidelberg Student Chapter of SIAM,

We cordially invite you to our upcoming event:

Industrial Talk by Dr. Christoph Zimmer (Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence - AI-based Physical Modeling)

Date: June 18th, 2019, 4.15pm at Mathematikon (INF 205), Conference Room (5th floor)

Title: "Safe Active Learning for Dynamic Exploration"

Learning time-series models is useful for many applications, such as simulation and forecasting. In this study, we consider the problem of actively learning time-series models while taking given safety constraints into account. For time-series modeling we employ a Gaussian process with a nonlinear exogenous input structure. The proposed approach generates data appropriate for time series model learning, i.e. input and output trajectories, by dynamically exploring the input space. The approach parameterizes the input trajectory as consecutive trajectory sections, which are determined stepwise given safety requirements and past observations. We analyze the proposed algorithm and evaluate it empirically on a technical application. The results show the effectiveness of our approach in a realistic technical use case.

Afterwards there will be a Meet & Greet with Pizza and Beer (and non-alcoholic beverages)!
