  3. Motivation Chernobyl disaster – Ukraine, April 26th 1986 Highly radioactive fallout plume drifted over large parts of Europe and Soviet Union. Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear • Decision Makers • require accurate and relevant predictions of toxic cloud evolution in order to • deploy emergency responders • evacuate cities • shelter population • cache medical gear Source: Wikipedia.org

  4. Example Mathematical Model Mathematical Model: puff dispersion model • Process Model • Initial Conditions • Measurement Model Source: SCIPUFF + Dipole Pride 26 [Terejanu08] INTEGRITY (Intrinsic) - Producer RELEVANCE (Extrinsic) - Consumer Inaccurate & Unreliable information is largely irrelevant to the decision maker “like beauty, what is truly information is largely in the eyes of the beholder” [Endsley01]

  5. PROPOSAL Decision-Centric Framework FORECAST PRODUCER FORECAST CONSUMER/USER General Use Algorithms Specific Use INTEGRITY RELEVANCE Reconcile the two views into a Decision-Centric Framework which provides both a more accurate and relevant approximation to the uncertainty propagation.

  6. Types of Uncertainty Stochastic Difference Equations (for Discrete-time dynamics) Stochastic Differential Equations (for Continuous-time dynamics) Aleatory Uncertainty: characterized by randomness with known probability distributions. Discrete-time measurement model Uncertain initial condition (example) Epistemic Uncertainty: used to model ignorance. Is the parameter in discussion random or not? If it is random what is the underlying probability distribution ? [Ferson96] Hybrid Behavior = Aleatory Uncertainty + Epistemic Uncertainty

  7. Example Uncertainty Propagation • Model parameters are all known – only aleatory uncertainty • Model parameters are uncertain (epistemic uncertainty) • infinite sets of pdfs

  11. Exact Solution • For continuous-time dynamical systems: Fokker-Planck-Kolmogorovequation (FPKE) • Analytical solution exists only for stationary pdfs and they are restricted to a limited class of dynamical systems • For discrete-time dynamical systems: Chapman-Kolmogorov equation (CKE) • Difficult to solve and approximate in general nonlinear case • Positivity constraint • Normalization constraint • No fixed Solution Domain

  12. Uncertainty Propagation Conventional Methods • Gaussian Closure Approach • Assume the underlying pdf to be Gaussian • Statistical linearization, Stochastic averaging • Monte Carlo approximation • Sample initial distribution • Propagate individual points through the exact nonlinear dynamics • Study the statistics of the propagated points

  13. Gaussian Mixture Models • With sufficient number of Gaussian components, any continuous pdf may be approximated as closely as desired FPKE Linearized propagation True pdf + + = Component 1 w1 Component 2 w2 Component 3 w3 Approximation w1 + w2 + w3 = 1 • Assumption:covariances are small enough such that the linearizations become representative for the dynamics around the means [Sorenson71] • Easily violated: strong nonlinearities, computational constraints

  14. Adaptive Gaussian Mixture Model • Pdf approximated by a finite sum of Gaussian densities • Exact solution given by FPKE • We want our Gaussian mixture to satisfy the FPKE • Compute FPKE error • Where:

  15. Adaptive Gaussian Mixture Model cont. • Approximation – first forward difference FPKE Update • The error is linear in the new weights • New weights obtained by minimizing

  16. Numerical Example • Quintic Oscillator • 11 Gaussian components • Coordinates of the means linearly spaced between [-5,-5] x [5,5] • Equal covariance matrices • Equally weighted • Propagation: 1000 sec • Stationary pdf:

  18. Nonlinear Filtering for Data Assimilation Measurement Process noise noise True State Physical Physical Sensor Process Process Initial Guess of Measurement Process Model - the State Model Corrector (Bayes rule) • Filtering is the problem of finding the probability density function (pdf) of the states of a system at the current time given all the observations available up to the current time Reality Abstract

Adaptive Gaussian Sum Filter 0.3 0.5 0.4 0.3 0.5 0.2 0.3 0.3 0.2 ≠ Update I: Continuous-time dynamical systems Updates the weights by constraining the Gaussian sum approximation to satisfy the Fokker-Planck equation Update II: Discrete-time nonlinear systems Weights to minimize the integral square difference between the true forecast pdf and its Gaussian sum approximation

  22. Numerical Example • Lorenz system [Lorenz31] • Performance Measures

  23. Numerical Results

  24. Part I: Concluding Remarks • Two update schemes for the forecast weights are presented in order to obtain a better Gaussian sum approximation to the forecast pdf. • Continuous Dynamical Systems: minimize the FPKE error • Discrete Dynamical Systems: minimize the integral square difference between the true pdf and its approximation • Both methods result in a strictlyconvex quadratic programming problems - guaranteed to have a unique solution. • Functional representation of the pdf • Computational Complexity: • Useful in pure propagation, low SNR, low frequency of measurements, limited information provided by the measurement model (eq. quadratic model).

  25. But … … even by improving the propagation method, chances are that we may still get a poor approximation to the forecast probability distribution where it matters in the decision making process. Eq. in the tails of the distribution. Why? Because we still have a finite representation.

  42. Part II: Concluding Remarks Interaction Level between decision maker and the prediction module – incorporate contextual information held by the decision maker Progressive Selection of Gaussian Components to supplement the initial uncertainty with new Gaussian components that are sensitive to the loss function at the decision time. The cost of the overall improvement is an increase in the number of Gaussian components. Significantly enhanced accuracy within the decision maker’s region of interest. The new probability density function addresses the region of interest and provides a better approximation overall, if any probability density mass is moving naturally towards the region of interest.

  43. But … … the methods provided increase the accuracy and the relevance of the propagated probability density function when the prior, process noise and the model parameters are precisely known. This is also known as the Bayesian dogma of precision [Walley91]. These precise values are difficult to obtain in practice, due to the amount of information available, incomplete knowledge of the system or systematic underestimation of uncertainty which arises in the elicitation process.
