Quantum Annealing for Variational Bayes Inference
Issei Sato, Kenichi Kurihara, Shu Tanaka, Hiroshi Nakagawa, Seiji Miyashita
This paper presents studies on a deterministic annealing algorithm based on quantum annealing for variational Bayes (QAVB) inference, which can be seen as an extension of the simulated annealing for variational Bayes (SAVB) inference. QAVB is as easy as SAVB to implement. Experiments revealed QAVB finds a better local optimum than SAVB in terms of the variational free energy in latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA).
