On the Interplay Between Deep Learning and Dynamical Systems

Rose Yu, Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, University of California, San Diego

Thursday, Sep 21, 2023

The explosion of spatiotemporal data in the physical world requires new deep-learning tools to model complex dynamical systems. On the other hand, dynamical system theory plays a key role in understanding the emerging behavior of deep neural networks.  In this talk, I will give an overview of our research to explore the interplay between the two. I will showcase the applications of these approaches in fluid mechanics, autonomous driving, and optimization.
