Master Internship #1: Black-box Variational Inference in Probabilistic Programs

From May to July 2016, I worked with Hongseok Yang at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom, on “Variational Inference in Probabilistic Programs”. During this internship, we expressed probabilistic programming languages into probabilistic transition systems. Then, we developed a new variational inference algorithm working on a probabilistic transition system.
