Petar M. Djurić “The past, present, and future of particle filtering”


Particle filtering has emerged as one of the most exciting developments in sequential signal processing in the last two decades. It has become a methodology of choice for resolving most complex problems of stochastic filtering. In this presentation, the basics of particle filtering and its properties will be briefly reviewed.  Then an overview of various advances of the methodology in recent years will be provided. Current challenges and the future of particle filtering will also be discussed.
