Victor Elvira awarded an ARL Grant

Victor Elvira has been awarded an ARL grant, by the Network Science and Intelligent Systems Division, to research "State-space models and approximate probabilistic inference over networks.". The project focuses on dynamical systems that evolve over time. Several agents acquire observations, that are processed in a distributed manner for estimation, classification, forecasting, and other key statistical tasks that are needed for a fast response data-driven decision-making process. The project tackles several inferential problems regarding the local inference, transmission, and fusion of Monte Carlo approximations.
