Variational methods with dependence structure

Mingzhang Yin &
It is a common practice among humans to deduce, to explain and to make predictions based on concepts that are not directly observable. In Bayesian statistics, the underlying propositions of the unobserved latent variables are summarized in the posterior distribution. With the increasing complexity of real-world data and statistical models, fast and accurate inference for the posterior becomes essential. Variational methods, by casting the posterior inference problem in the optimization framework, are widely used for...
