**Graphical Models: Challenges**

Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM) Bayesian Network Markov Network Sprinkler Rain Grass Wet Advantage: Compactly represent probability As we all know, GM have many attractive properties for prob mdl. However, there are major challenges in using GMs. In part, inference is generally intractable. In turn, this makes learning the parameters or structure of a GM a very difficult task since learning typically required inference as a subroutine. Problem: Inference is intractable Problem: Learning is difficult 2

**Deep Learning Stack many layers**

E.g.: DBN [Hinton & Salakhutdinov, 2006] CDBN [Lee et al., 2009] DBM [Salakhutdinov & Hinton, 2010] Potentially much more powerful than shallow architectures [Bengio, 2009] But … Inference is even harder Learning requires extensive effort Recently, deep learning has attracted increasing interest. The standard approach for DL is to stack many layers of graphical models (such as RBMs). Compared to shallow archi, this is potentially much more powerful in terms of representation and statistical learning. Unfortunately, even learning one layer of RBM is intractable. And when multiple layers are stacked, inference becomes even harder, and learning requires the black art of extensive engineering such as preproc and tuning. 3

**Learning: Requires approximate inference Inference: Still approximate**

Graphical Models To identify potential solutions, let’s consider the following visualization. Here, the red circle represents all distributions that can be compactly repr by a GM. As I mentioned earlier, the challenge is that learn req approx inf, And even if a perfect mdl is learned, inf still requires approx (such as gibbs or var-inf). There is no guarantee on how long it’ll take or the quality of rsts.

5
**Problem: Too restricted**

E.g., hierarchical mixture model, thin junction tree, etc. Problem: Too restricted Graphical Models Existing Tractable Models An alternative appro is to do all approx upfront to learn a tractable mdl and then have peace of mind in inf. This sounds very attractive, but unfortunately existing mdls such as … are too restricted.

**This Talk: Sum-Product Networks**

Compactly represent partition function using a deep network Sum-Product Networks Graphical Models Existing Tractable Models In this talk, we ask the question: how general can a tractable mdl be? We found that there are surprisingly general conditions, and we introduce SPNs based on these conditions. The key insight is to incorporate comp into prob mdl, and compactly repr the part func as a deep ntw.

**Exact inference linear time in network size**

**Can compactly represent many more distributions**

Sum-Product Networks Graphical Models Existing Tractable Models And we can compactly repr many more distributions compared to existing mdls.

9
**Learn optimal way to reuse computation, etc.**

Sum-Product Networks Graphical Models Existing Tractable Models In part, we can even compactly repr many general classes of distributions for which the GM is a complete connected graph. And the reason is that SPN can leverage many structural properties such as determinism and CSI, and learn the optimal way to form and reuse partial comp.

**Outline Sum-product networks (SPNs) Learning SPN Experimental results**

Conclusion I will start by introducing SPNs. Then I will address the crucial problem of learning an SPN. Finally, … 10

11
**Why Is Inference Hard? Bottleneck: Summing out variables**

E.g.: Partition function Sum of exponentially many products Before introducing SPN, let’s consider why inf is difficult in a GM. Computing prob is actually easy up to a proportion; we simply multiply the potentials of factors. What makes inf hard is to sum out variables, which requires summing over an exp num of comb. The extreme case is the part func Z, which requires summing out all variables.

12
**Alternative Representation**

X1 X2 P(X) 1 0.4 0.2 0.1 0.3 P(X) = 0.4 I[X1=1] I[X2=1] + 0.2 I[X1=1] I[X2=0] + 0.1 I[X1=0] I[X2=1] + 0.3 I[X1=0] I[X2=0] To address this problem, we’ll build on the idea of Darwiche 2003. For simplicity, let’s start with boolean vars. Later, we will see how to extend this to discrete and continuous vars. Suppose we have two vars X1 and X2. The prob dist can be repr as a table. Alternatively, we can repr this as a summation over the prob multiplied by the corresponding indicators. For example, this indicator is 1 if …, and 0 otherwise. Network Polynomial [Darwiche, 2003]

13
**Alternative Representation**

X1 X2 P(X) 1 0.4 0.2 0.1 0.3 P(X) = 0.4 I[X1=1] I[X2=1] + 0.2 I[X1=1] I[X2=0] + 0.1 I[X1=0] I[X2=1] + 0.3 I[X1=0] I[X2=0] It’s easy to verify that the prob can be computed by setting the appropriate indicator values. Network Polynomial [Darwiche, 2003]

14
**Shorthand for Indicators**

X1 X2 P(X) 1 0.4 0.2 0.1 0.3 P(X) = 0.4 X1 X2 + 0.2 X1 X2 + 0.1 X1 X2 + 0.3 X1 X2 To make things less cumbersome, we can use the following shorthands, where … Network Polynomial [Darwiche, 2003]

15
**Easy: Set both indicators to 1**

Sum Out Variables e: X1 = 1 X1 X2 P(X) 1 0.4 0.2 0.1 0.3 P(e) = 0.4 X1 X2 + 0.2 X1 X2 + 0.1 X1 X2 + 0.3 X1 X2 The good news is that summing out a variable in this repr is easy: Suppose we want to comp the marginal of X1=1, which requires sum out X2. We can do this by simply setting both … to 1. Intuitively, setting an indicator to 1 will include that val into summation. In part, to comp part func Z, we can just set all ind to 1. This sounds great, except for one problem, there are exponentially many terms. Set X1 = 1, X1 = 0, X2 = 1, X2 = 1 Easy: Set both indicators to 1

16
**Graphical Representation**

X1 X2 P(X) 1 0.4 0.2 0.1 0.3 0.4 0.3 0.2 0.1 We can visualize this problem graphically by putting sum node for wt summation and prod nodes for multi. X1 X1 X2 X2

17
**But … Exponentially Large**

Example: Parity Uniform distribution over states with even number of 1’s 2N-1 N2N-1 The problem is that this graph is exponentially large. E.g., consider parity, which corresponds to … There are exp many even states. It’s easy to show that there is no conditional indep under this dist., so to repr this as a GM, you need a fully connected graph. X1 X1 X2 X2 X3 X3 X4 X4 X5 X5 17 17

18
**But … Exponentially Large**

Can we make this more compact? Example: Parity Uniform distribution over states of even number of 1’s So the key question is can we make this graph more compact. X1 X1 X2 X2 X3 X3 X4 X4 X5 X5 18 18

19
**Use a Deep Network Example: Parity**

Uniform distribution over states with even number of 1’s O(N) The answer is yes. In part, this ntw repr exactly the same dist with just linear size. 19

**Use a Deep Network Example: Parity**

21
**Arithmetic Circuits (ACs)**

Data structure for efficient inference Darwiche [2003] Compilation target of Bayesian networks Key idea: Use ACs instead to define a new class of deep probabilistic models Develop new deep learning algorithms for this class of models We will call this class sum-product networks, since it represents distributions using DAGs of sums and products. as we'll see, these will enable much better deep learning than before

22
**Sum-Product Networks (SPNs)**

Rooted DAG Nodes: Sum, product, input indicator Weights on edges from sum to children 0.7 0.3 This leads us to introduce spns. An SPN is a DAG with a root. The leaves are input, and the internal nodes are sums and prods. A sum outputs the wt sum of child, … 0.4 0.9 0.7 0.2 0.6 0.1 0.3 0.8 X1 X1 X2 X2 22

23
**Distribution Defined by SPN**

P(X) S(X) 0.7 0.3 We can define a prb dist by treating these values as unnormalize probs, just like a MN. 0.4 0.9 0.7 0.2 0.6 0.1 0.3 0.8 X1 X1 X2 X2 23 23

24
**Can We Sum Out Variables?**

= P(e) Xe S(X) S(e) 0.7 0.3 So the key question is can we replace the exp sum for the true marginal by the linear eval of the ntw? If this is true, we are golden. But if we pick an arbitrary SPN, this may not be true. 0.4 0.9 0.7 0.2 0.6 0.1 0.3 0.8 X1 X1 X2 X2 e: X1 = 1 1 1 1 24

25
**Valid SPN SPN is valid if S(e) = Xe S(X) for all e**

Valid Can compute marginals efficiently Partition function Z can be computed by setting all indicators to 1 We thus define that an SPN is valid iff … If an SPN is valid, … 25

26
**Valid SPN: General Conditions**

Theorem: SPN is valid if it is complete & consistent Consistent: Under product, no variable in one child and negation in another Complete: Under sum, children cover the same set of variables Fortunately, there are simple conditions for valid SPNs, which are both very general and very easy to validate or enforce. We can prove that an SPN is valid if it sats complete and consist. Complete means that … … Incomplete Inconsistent S(e) Xe S(X) S(e) Xe S(X) 26

27
**Semantics of Sums and Products**

Product Feature Form feature hierarchy Sum Mixture (with hidden var. summed out) i i wij wij Sum out Yi j …… …… …… …… The nodes in an SPN have very intuitive semantics. A prod node defines a feat by taking conjunction of its child. Together they form a feat hier. A sum can be viewed as a mixture with the hidden var sum out. The hidden var chooses the child; by setting all indicators to 1, the indicators can be dropped. SPN can be viewed as combining mix of experts and prod of expert with alternating mix/prods. j I[Yi = j]

33
**Handling Continuous Variables**

Sum Integral over input Simplest case: Indicator Gaussian SPN compactly defines a very large mixture of Gaussians So far, we assume vars are boolean. Extension to discrete var is trivial, we simply use the indicators for all discrete values. To handle cont var, as we will do in the experiments, we can replace the sum nodes over input by an integral. E.g., we can replace the indicators by a uni-var gaussian. In this case, SPN … We know that with enough comp, we can approx any cont var. So SPN is a potentially very powerful way to model cont distr.

Determinism, context-specific indep., etc. Can potentially learn the optimal way TO-DO: Three combined Existing inf algs such as … can be viewed as special cases of SPNs. In addition, SPNs can repr the nested combination of these algs, and learn from data the optimal way of such comb. 34

**SPNs Everywhere Graphical models Methods for efficient inference**

E.g., arithmetic circuits, AND/OR graphs, case-factor diagrams SPNs are a class of probabilistic models SPNs have validity conditions SPNs can be learned from data Highly related; but these are three key contributions of our work that go beyond ACs etc. In contrast to Acs and AND/OR graphs, which are data structures for efficient inference, SPNs are a class … SPNs have val … whereas ACs have none, because the question doesn't arise in the context of compilation SPNs are the first to make a connection between efficient inference and deep learning x// More general than AC, AND/OR, and simpler than CFD. Moreover, AC, AND/OR are considered as compilation target, SPN shows that they are representations in its own right. Most importantly, SPN represents the first approach for learning directly from data. 35

Approximate General Graphical Models Approximate Data Performance Given same computation budget, which approach has better performance? Some dist such as ising mdl can be compactly repr by GMs but not SPNs, however, inf requires var approx such as gibbs and var-inf, which can also be viewed as spec case of SPNs. E.g., gibbs can be viewed as picking a random child rather than summing over them. So given the same comp budget, which appro will have better perf?
