Scenario optimization is a general methodology that enables one to make designs based on knowledge that comes from data. When the scenario design is applied to a new, out-of-sample, case, its performance is guaranteed by a solid generalization theory which underpins the use of the method. In this talk, I shall try to give an overview of the scenario approach, including its theoretical foundations. The generality of the scenario approach makes it useful across a variety of fields including control, identification and classification and examples will be provided to highlight the versatility of the method.
