GO Hessian for Expectation-Based Objectives

16 Jun 2020Yulai CongMiaoyun ZhaoJianqiao LiJunya ChenLawrence Carin

An unbiased low-variance gradient estimator, termed GO gradient, was proposed recently for expectation-based objectives $\mathbb{E}_{q_{\boldsymbol{\gamma}}(\boldsymbol{y})} [f(\boldsymbol{y})]$, where the random variable (RV) $\boldsymbol{y}$ may be drawn from a stochastic computation graph with continuous (non-reparameterizable) internal nodes and continuous/discrete leaves. Upgrading the GO gradient, we present for $\mathbb{E}_{q_{\boldsymbol{\boldsymbol{\gamma}}}(\boldsymbol{y})} [f(\boldsymbol{y})]$ an unbiased low-variance Hessian estimator, named GO Hessian...
