there is one high-level example of the aplication of variational inference for the Latent Dirichlet Allocation? I am trying to understand the inference process from the LDA via variational inference but there is only tecnical-heavy papers. I found a nice example of the Gibbs sampling and I understand how it works now. So I am wondering if there is an example step-by-step for the inference via variational inference.
