Estimating Kullback-Leibler Divergence Using Kernel Machines

2 May 2019 Kartik Ahuja

Recently, a method called the Mutual Information Neural Estimator (MINE) that uses neural networks has been proposed to estimate mutual information and more generally the Kullback-Leibler (KL) divergence between two distributions. The method uses the Donsker-Varadhan representation to arrive at the estimate of the KL divergence and is better than the existing estimators in terms of scalability and flexibility... (read more)
