Kalman Filters

Understanding or controlling a physical system often requires a model of the system, that is, knowledge of the characteristics and structure of the system. A model can be a pre-defined structure or can be determined solely through data. In the case of Kalman Filtering, we create a model and use the model as a framework for learning about the system. This is part of the Control branch of our Autonomous Learning taxonomy from Chapter  1.
