How good is the Bayes posterior for prediction really? « Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science

Posted by  on It might not be common courtesy of this blog to make comments on a very-recently-arxiv-ed paper. But I have seen two copies of this paper entitled “how good is the Bayes posterior in deep neural networks really” left on the tray of the department printer during the past weekend, so I cannot underestimate the popularity of the work. The paper argues that in a deep neural network, for prediction purposes, the full posterior yields a worse accuracy/cross-extropy than the one from th
