$α$-Variational Inference with Statistical Guarantees

9 Oct 2017 Yun Yang Debdeep Pati Anirban Bhattacharya

We propose a family of variational approximations to Bayesian posterior distributions, called $\alpha$-VB, with provable statistical guarantees. The standard variational approximation is a special case of $\alpha$-VB with $\alpha=1$... (read more)
