Implicit MLE: Backpropagating Through Discrete Exponential Family Distributions

Backpropagation is the workhorse of deep learning, but unfortunately, it only works for continuous functions that are amenable to the chain rule of differentiation. Since discrete algorithms have no continuous derivative, deep networks with such algorithms as part of them cannot be effectively trained using backpropagation. This paper presents a method to incorporate a large […]
