MAIN SCIENTIFIC ACHIEVEMENTS (a) Introduction of new Bayesian methods in system identification A. Chiuso and co-workers (G. Pillonetto and G. De Nicolao), developing on seminal work by G. Pillonetto and G. De Nicolao, have recently made fundamental contributions to system identification introducing tools from statistical machine learning (Gaussian processes, kernel methods) and sparsity enhancing methods. In particular: (i) The new Bayesian methods have lead to algorithms for system identification which are very robust w.r.t. model complexity selection, outperforming classical order estimation techniques for parametric identification methods. The robustness is inherited by the regularization properties of the Bayesian approach and allows identification to be performed also when the data set is small (as compared to the model complexity). (ii) His work, combining ”sparse Bayesian methods” with the Bayesian approach to system identification has made it possible to tackle simultaneous identification and variable selection for systems involving large number of variables; this has important implications in modeling sparsely interconnected (networked) dynamical systems. (iii) Has shown that ”sparsity based” methods in a Bayesian framework possess very nice properties in classical (Fisher) terms, e.g. in terms of their mean squared error properties (iv) New Bayesian priors are now being studied to favor “low complexity” (i.e. small McMillan degree) systems, extending ideas recently proposed in machine learning and signal processing using so called “log-det heuristics”. Preliminary results show substantial improvement in terms of performance (quality of the estimators and robustness) w.r.t. classical methods. (b) Contributions to subspace identification While subspace algorithms have been extensively studied during the 80’s and until the late 90’s, two important questions were left open for a long time: (i) Consistent subspace identification of systems operating in closed loop and (ii) deriving manageable expressions for the asymptotic covariance of subspace estimates. In this respect A. Chiuso has given major contributions to the solution of these problems: (i) A key idea has been the introduction of the predictor-based identification approach, based on the observation that both the one-step Kalman predictor and the system state space are the same, irrespective of closed-loop operation. By a stochastic realization approach the state space can be constructed for systems operating in closed loop. This has led to new efficient algorithms for closed loop subspace identification, solving a question which had been open for long time. (ii) A major step forward have been the new expressions for the asymptotic covariances of subspace methods. These expressions have led to a comparative analysis of most available subspace algorithms, including open loop and newly developed closed loop methods. (c) System-theoretic methods in computer vision: real time structure from motion (SFM) The SFM problem has been one of the main research areas of interest for the computer vision community. In real-time it can be formulated as a nonlinear filtering problem in the Euclidean manifold 6 SE(3). Traditionally efforts had been concentrated on the geometric reconstruction while less attention was payed to correctly handling uncertainty and ”noise” in the inference problem. As a result a robust algorithm which could work in unstructured environments has long been lacking. The main contributions to the solution of this problem can be described as follows: (i) Initially, a first principle analysis of the structure from motion (SFM) problem has led to characterization of well known illusions and ambiguities (such as rubbery-motion and bass-relief ambiguity) in terms of local minima of a suitable cost function. (ii) Further, an original analysis (including convergence proofs) of the relevant nonlinear filtering techniques on Lie groups such as SE(n) and SO(n) has been done and then applied to the problem of motion and structure determination from monocular vision. (iii) This research has led to the first real time reconstruction system for simultaneous motion and structure estimation; the system, featured in the July 11 2000 issue of the journal EE Times, consists in a body of hardware, software and algorithms that allows estimating the three-dimensional motion and point-wise structure of a moving scene with a single camera in real-time, with no prior information about the shape and motion of the scene, except for its rigidity. This system represents the first case of a causal algorithm implemented in real-time, and has been made available for academic use via the Internet. (d) Modeling and synthesis of complex dynamic images and visual phenomena A. Chiuso and co-workers have proposed a new approach based on dynamical system modeling and identification for recognition and synthesis of complex visual phenomena such as textures and gaits. Among many non-trivial issues to be solved was, above all, the very large dimension of the order of tens of thousands of the signals involved. These techniques have been proven effective for synthesis of synthetic scenes and provide high potential for video compression, model based recognition and classification tasks. (e) Contribution to estimation and control in networked system In this area the main contributions are as follows: (i) An analysis of Kalman-type algorithms for distributed estimation in networked systems has been performed, analyzing the effect of the network topology. This has evidenced the role of certain synthetic network properties such as the essential spectral radius or the Frobenius norm of the system transition matrix, depending on the specific topology. (ii) A systematic comparison of different (suboptimal) strategies for data fusion in the presence of lossy networks. It has been shown that it is not possible to establish a clear-cut superiority of one algorithm when estimation accuracy and computational complexity have to be traded. Also the relative performance may depend on the specific experimental conditions. New performance bounds have been provided. (iii) A new synchronization algorithm for a class of interconnected systems has been proposed and analyzed. (iv) Recent research activity is targeted to control problems in the presence of non-ideal communication channels accounting for signal to noise ratio limitations, packet dropouts and delays. Needless to say, these are the ingredients which need to be traded when jointly designing control and realistic communication protocols where data rate, decoding delay, and error probability are tightly linked. While these aspects have been separately (and thoroughly) studied in the literature, a framework accounting for all these aspects is still lacking; the problem formulation and some promising results have been recently submitted for publication. (f) Hybrid Systems A. Chiuso has also done research on the analysis of the observability and identifiability properties of switching linear state space models; in particular new rank conditions that the structural parameters of the model must satisfy in order for filtering and smoothing algorithms to operate correctly have been found. Also identifiability of the model parameters has been studied by characterizing the set 7 of models that produce the same output measurements, giving also conditions under which the true model can be identified. (g) Applications to Adaptive Optics Traditional methods for calibrating Adaptive Optics (AO) systems are based on static models and offline identification experiments. This approach may be criticized for two reasons: (i) while static models are accurate enough for existing systems, it is expected that next generation AO systems will exhibit non-trivial dynamic behavior, thus requiring dynamic models and (ii) both the deformable mirror and the sensors exhibit linear characteristics only around the operating conditions. To overcome these problems, the new closed loop subspace identification techniques discussed above have been successfully applied to modeling state-of-the-art adaptive optics systems (in collaboration with the European Southern Observatory). With this new approach dynamical models can be constructed; most importantly this can be performed on-line and, therefore, around the targeted operating conditions. Identification of these systems is highly nontrivial as it involves tens (or even hundreds) of inputs and outputs.
