Hybrid modelling

Combining machine learning with physical models may give the best from both worlds.

Machine learning methods often work as black boxes and do not provide insight of the physics underlying the model. However, a hybrid approach combining physical models with machine learning preserves the physical information, while still improving the flexibility and precision of the model. This type of individually tailored hybrid approach requires a combination of strong domain knowledge and machine learning expertise, but results in robust semi-interpretable models and increased physical understanding.
