Unbiased Implicit Variational Inference
arXiv: Machine Learning, Volume abs/1808.02078, 2018.
We develop unbiased implicit variational inference (UIVI), a method that expands the applicability of variational inference by defining an expressive variational family. UIVI considers an implicit variational distribution obtained in a hierarchical manner using a simple reparameterizable distribution whose variational parameters are defin...More
