Hi there,
I have a question on conjugate distributions. Now, I have 2 scenarios.

Conjguate
concent = …
x = pyro.sample(“x”, dist.DirichletMultinomial(concent), obs = data) 
Nonconjugate
concent = …
y = pyro.sample(“y”, dist.Dirichlet(concent))
x = pyro.sample(“x”, dist.MultiNomial(x)), obs = data)
When I try to run the second example with autoguide, it treats the y as a prior, while in the first case it does not. Is there a way to do the second example such that I do not treat the yas a prior but instead as a MLE estimate instead?
