Speaker: Dr. Giulio Gori

In a multi-fidelity setting, it is fundamental to establish the correct hierarchy in terms of data credibility w.r.t. the reality of interest. Unfortunately, the complexity characterizing aerospace applications generally makes the direct estimation of data fidelity difficult, if not intractable, leaving ground to modeling biases. In this context, we aim at developing an agnostic framework which is capable of recognizing the coherence of models predictions w.r.t. the reality of interest and, at the same time, capable of neglecting inaccurate, or wrong, information. It will be shown that this capability is particularly relevant whenever the Modeler does not select the appropriate ordering for the sequential construction of the multi-level surrogate. Moreover, we will show how the proposed formulation can also be exploited to obtain invaluable insights about the physics underlying the reality of interest. Eventually, we also provide perspectives concerning the future deployment of the proposed methodology, with particular reference to Bayesian optimization methods and to the efficient construction of databases.
