See original GitHub issue

Hi Anand and all,

As weighting of samples, weight should be detached from the current computational graph for the expected optimization objective, right? See

Besides, as the original paper said, “Vanilla VAE separated out the KL divergence in the bound in order to achieve a simpler and lower-variance update. Unfortunately, no analogous trick applies for k > 1” (Y. Burda et al., 2016). How are we still able to compute KL Divergence?
