Classical methods for inverse problems are mainly based on regularization theory. In particular those  which are based on optimization of a criterion with two parts: a data-model matching and a regularization term. Different choices for these two terms and great number of optimization algorithms have been proposed with great success. But there are still many limitations. Between them, the main one is accounting for the errors and uncertainty quantification.

Bayesian inference is the main tool to push much farther these limitations. Bayesian learning is the flexible tool for inference (inversion), learning (identification) and uncertainty quantification (UQ). However, the Bayesian computations can become very heavy computationally.

In this talk, an overview of these subjects is presented, particularly adapted for engineers. Few industry examples illustrate the main idea.
