A Fourier View of REINFORCE

12 Aug 2018Adeel Pervez

We show a connection between the Fourier spectrum of Boolean functions and the REINFORCE gradient estimator for binary latent variable models. We show that REINFORCE estimates (up to a factor) the degree-1 Fourier coefficients of a Boolean function... (read more)
