  • Given a set of items $\mathcal{F}$ and a weight function $\mathtt{wt}: \mathcal{F} \mapsto (0,1)$, the problem of sampling seeks to sample an item proportional to its weight. Sampling is a fundamental problem in machine learning. The daunting computational complexity of sampling with formal guarantees leads designers to propose heuristics-based techniques for which no rigorous theoretical analysis exists to quantify the quality of generated distributions. This poses a challenge in designing a… CONTINUE READING
