Low-Precision Arithmetic for Fast Gaussian Processes
We study the different failure modes that can occur
when training GPs in half precision. To circumvent these failure
modes, we propose a multi-faceted approach involving conjugate
gradients with re-orthogonalization, mixed precision, and
preconditioning -- 38th Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial
Intelligence (UAI 2022).
