The paper proposes BatchBALD, a batch acquisition function for sample selection in active learning. A greedy optimization algorithm is presented for efficient sample selection and BatchBALD score maximization. The reviewers and AC agree that this is an interesting work and that the approach is clearly presented and convincing. In addition the author response satisfactorily addresses the points raised in the reviews. Hence acceptance is recommended.
