Tech Talk: Automatic Differentiation via Effects and Handlers: An Implementation in Frank
Jesse Sigal, University of Edinburgh.
Automatic differentiation (AD) is an important family of algorithms which enables derivative based optimization. We show that AD can be simply implemented with effects and handlers by doing so in the Frank language. By considering how our implementation behaves in Frank’s operational semantics, we show how our code performs the dynamic creation of programs during evaluation.
