In January 2017 I wrote a series of blog posts on adversarial algorithms for variational inference. I eventually turned this into a paper on arXiv. There is a slew of papers coming out on adversarial VI this ICML season, so here are a few recommendations for papers that independently discovered and discussed similar ideas. Here's a list of recommended reads:
