With the increasing complexity of engineered systems, it becomes critically important to develop cost-effective system predictive models in reliability modeling, uncertainty quantification, and system design optimization for a multitude of reliability-critical applications. During the last decade, machine learning has shown potential in generating data-driven surrogate models that can be used to replace expensive physics-based models and support uncertainty quantification and continuous improvement of system design under uncertainty.

However, challenges persist in improving the fidelity of predictive models for the mimic of engineered systems due to the lack of expensive high-fidelity data. Thus, the main theme of this Special Issue is dedicated to the development of novel machine learning methods that shed new light on deeply integrating uncertainty quantification (UQ) methods with machine learning for solving engineering problems under uncertainties.

Topic Areas

  • High dimensional uncertainty quantification
  • Multi-fidelity data fusion for UQ using machine learning
  • Deep learning-based uncertainty quantification
  • Uncertainty quantification of machine learning models
  • Model verification and validation of machine learning
  • Model calibration and validation
  • Reliability modeling of engineered systems
  • Explainable machine learning-based methods
  • Applications of advanced machine learning methods for uncertainty quantification
