Model Inversion and Data Assimilation for Decision-Making in an Uncertain but Data-Rich World

Mark Asch
Université de Picardie (Jules Verne)

We have a reasonable corpus of theory and numerical experience in Model Inversion and Data Assimilation, but the abundance of Data that is available today is changing the paradigms and inciting us to study new approaches to these problems. In this talk we will begin by briefly reviewing “classical” inverse problem and data assimilation theories. Then we will broach the potential of data-driven assimilation and inversion, and detail some of the most promising approaches for this - specifically for time-series data. This will lead us to the challenging question: how can one couple model- and data-driven approaches to solve complex, industrial decision-making problems in the presence of uncertainty?
