In this talk, we will introduce sequential Monte Carlo algorithms for sampling from a sequence of evolving distributions. We will mostly focus on the filtering problem, i.e., learning about the state of the system from currently available data, and issues such as algorithm degeneracy, and rejuvenation. Finally, we might discuss the problem of learning static parameters.
