In this paper, we empirically analyze the behaviors of the Variational Bayes algorithm for the mixture model. While the Variational Bayesian learning has provided computational tractability and good generalization performance in many applications, little has been done to investigate its properties. Recently, the stochastic complexity of mixture models in… CONTINUE READING
