Parallel approaches for the Bayesian Gaussian process latent variable model [Slides]
We consider the task of training a Bayesian GP-LVM and uncover opportunities to employ parallelism in computing the collapsed lower bound to the model evidence and its gradients with respect to its variational parameters. We will discuss its implementation within a C++ code for deep GPs.
