Machine Learning Trick of the Day (4): Reparameterisation Tricks
Our ability to rewrite statistical problems in an equivalent but different form, to reparameterise them, is one of the most general-purpose tools we have in mathematical statistics. We used reparameterisation in all the tricks we explored in this series so far: trick 1 re-expressed a log-partition function in terms of copies (replicas) of the marginal probability, trick 2 re-expressed a ...

Bayesian Reasoning and Deep Learning 4

Bayesian Reasoning and Deep Learning
I gave a talk entitled 'Bayesian Reasoning and Deep Learning' recently. Here is the abstract and the slides for interest. Slides Bayesian Reasoning and Deep Learning Abstract Deep learning and Bayesian machine learning are currently two of the most active areas of machine learning research. Deep learning provides a powerful class of models and an ...
