Reparameterization Gradients through Acceptance-Rejection Sampling Algorithms
AISTATS, pp. 489-498, 2017.
Variational inference using the reparameterization trick has enabled large-scale approximate Bayesian inference in complex probabilistic models, leveraging stochastic optimization to sidestep intractable expectations. The reparameterization trick is applicable when we can simulate a random variable by applying a differentiable determinist...More
