Reachability analysis computes the set of reachable states of a system with uncertain initial states, inputs, and parameters. One major application of reachability analysis is the formal verification of cyber-physical systems. However, obtaining an accurate model for such systems to perform a model-based reachable analysis is a challenging task. This talk will present new algorithms for developing data-driven reachability analysis from input/output data with formal guarantees. The proposed algorithms support incorporating side information in terms of signal temporal logic to decrease the conservatism of the reachable sets. Then, through applications in providing robust predictive control and guaranteed safe reinforcement learning for black-box systems, the effectiveness of the algorithms will be presented.
