Defining dynamics via Gaussian processes

Two classic flavours together, Gaussian Processes and dynamical_systems, where the dynamics are modelled by a Gaussian process.

Here we use Gaussian processes to define the dynamics, in particular to learn nonparametric transition, observation or state densities. This is what [Turner, Deisenroth, and Rasmussen (2010);Frigola, Chen, and Rasmussen (2014);Frigola et al. (2013);EleftheriadisIdentification2017] do.

This is distinct from calculating a Gaussian process posterior via a state filter, which is another way you can combine the concepts of dynamics and Gaussian process.

c.f. Variational filters and particle filters.

Possible the same, recurrent Gaussian Processes? πŸ— (Mattos et al. 2016, 2017; FΓΆll et al. 2017).
