Psychologist observing two chimpanzees in a zoo have discovered that they performed a behaviour hitherto never seen, they coordinated together in a rhythmic social ritual.
The project will develop and utilise computational techniques based around the simulation of large ensembles of “particles” to allow us to estimate and quantify our uncertainty. These techniques will be combined with models inspired by modern machine learning, particularly utilising deep Gaussian processes to describe the profile of atmospheric pollutants as they evolve over time.
