VEEGAN: Reducing Mode Collapse in GANs using Implicit Variational Learning
TLDR
We introduce VEEGAN, which features a reconstructor network, reversing the action of the generator by mapping from data to noise. Expand

Bayesian Optimization for Likelihood-Free Inference of Simulator-Based Statistical Models
TLDR
We propose a strategy which combines probabilistic modeling of the discrepancy with optimization to facilitate likelihood-free inference of simulator-based statistical models. Expand

Fundamentals and Recent Developments in Approximate Bayesian Computation
&NA; Bayesian inference plays an important role in phylogenetics, evolutionary biology, and in many other branches of science. It provides a principled framework for dealing with uncertainty andExpand

Likelihood-free inference by ratio estimation
TLDR
We consider the problem of parametric statistical inference when likelihood computations are prohibitively expensive but sampling from the model is possible. Expand

Statistical Inference of Intractable Generative Models via Classification
Increasingly complex generative models are being used across the disciplines as they allow for realistic characterization of data, but a common difficulty with them is the prohibitively largeExpand

ELFI: Engine for Likelihood Free Inference
Engine for Likelihood-Free Inference (ELFI) is a Python software library for performing likelihood-free inference (LFI). ELFI provides a convenient syntax for arranging components in LFI, such asExpand

Variational Noise-Contrastive Estimation
TLDR
We propose variational noise-contrastive estimation (VNCE), a method that can be used for both parameter estimation of unnormalised models and posterior inference of latent variables. Expand
