The problem of drawing samples from a discrete distribution can be converted into a discrete optimization problem.

Non-conjugate Variational Message Passing for Multinomial and Binary Regression

no code implementations NeurIPS 2011 David A. Knowles, Tom Minka

Variational Message Passing (VMP) is an algorithmic implementation of the Variational Bayes (VB) method which applies only in the special case of conjugate exponential family models.
