ABC-CDE: Toward Approximate Bayesian Computation with Complex High-Dimensional Data and Limited Simulations
We show how a nonparametric conditional density estimation (CDE) framework helps address three nontrivial challenges in ABC. (i) how to efficiently estimate the posterior distribution with limited simulations and different types of data, (ii) how to tune and compare the performance of ABC and related methods in estimating the posterior itself, rather than just certain properties of the density, and (iii) how to efficiently choose among a large set of summary statistics based on a CDE surrogate loss.
