Particle Smoothing Variational Objectives

20 Sep 2019Antonio Khalil MorettiZizhao WangLuhuan WuIddo DroriItsik Pe'er

A body of recent work has focused on constructing a variational family of filtered distributions using Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC). Inspired by this work, we introduce Particle Smoothing Variational Objectives (SVO), a novel backward simulation technique and smoothed approximate posterior defined through a subsampling process...
