Variational Algorithms for Marginal MAP

  title={Variational Algorithms for Marginal MAP},
  author={Qiang Liu and Alexander T. Ihler},
The marginal maximum a posteriori probability (MAP) estimation problem, which calculates the mode of the marginal posterior distribution of a subset of variables with the remaining variables marginalized, is an important inference problem in many models, such as those with hidden variables or uncertain parameters. Unfortunately, marginal MAP can be NP-hard… CONTINUE READING
