Using Large Ensembles of Control Variates for Variational Inference

NeurIPS 2018 Tomas GeffnerJustin Domke

Variational inference is increasingly being addressed with stochastic optimization. In this setting, the gradient's variance plays a crucial role in the optimization procedure, since high variance gradients lead to poor convergence... (read more)
