Decentralized Langevin Dynamics for Bayesian Learning

Meta Review

The paper adresses the important problem of Bayesian inference in a distributed setting, via a decentralized Langevin algorithm. Although the method is a natural extension of existing algorithms, its simplicity is an advantage, and the theoretical analysis is nontrivial. After considering the author's response, all reviewers agreed that the paper will make a nice contribution to Neurips.
