Dynamics-based Data Science

In this talk, I will present a new concept "dynamics-based data science" and the approaches for studying dynamical processes, including dynamical network biomarkers (DNB), auto reservoir neural networks (ARNN) and partical cross-mapping. These methods are all data-driven or model-free approaches but based on the theoretical frameworks of nonlinear dynamics.

We show the principles and advantages of dynamics-based data-driven approaches as explicable, quantifiable, and generalizable. In particular, dynamics-based data science approaches exploit the essential features of dynamical systems in terms of data, e.g. strong fluctuations near a bifurcation point, low-dimensionality of a center manifold or an attractor, and phase-space reconstruction from a single variable by delay embedding theorem, and thus are able to provide different or additional information to the traditional approaches, i.e. statistics-based data science approaches. The dynamical-based data science approaches will further play an important role in the systematical research of various fields in future.
