Event description

Description

Fast approximate inference is on the interface between Statistics and Computer Science and has sub-topics such as:

  • (mean field) variational Bayes

  • expectation propagation

  • Gaussian variational approximation

  • semiparametric mean field variational bayes

  • stochastic variational inference

  • variational message passing

  • automatic differentiation variational inference

  • Thouless-Anderson-Palmer approximation


It has a recent literature encompassing:

  • algorithms
  • software packages
  • asymptotic theory
  • applications

The workshop will be a blend of tutorials, panel discussions, presentations and group activities.

Invited Speaker: Professor David Nott, National University of Singapore, Singapore.
