Lifted Tree-Reweighted Variational Inference

17 Jun 2014Hung Hai BuiTuyen N. HuynhDavid Sontag

We analyze variational inference for highly symmetric graphical models such as those arising from first-order probabilistic models. We first show that for these graphical models, the tree-reweighted variational objective lends itself to a compact lifted formulation which can be solved much more efficiently than the standard TRW formulation for the ground graphical model...
