We present progress towards a new strategy to improve the precision of
PDFs in the small $x$ extrapolation region. In particular, we will show how a
Gaussian Process can be used to model fake deep inelastic scattering data in
the small $x$ extrapolation region, and how, by treating this synthetic data
as regular experimental data, it might be used in a PDF fit to control the
uncertainties of PDFs in the extrapolation region. Finally, we will discuss
current obstacles and possible solutions to these obstacles.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
