I shall briefly describe a recent, promising method to perform MAP inference for discrete undirected graphical models based on reducing the optimization problem to finding a maximum weight stable set (MWSS) in a derived weighted graph, which if perfect, may be performed in time polynomial in the number of variables. I shall discuss recent work (AISTATS 2015), where the limits of this approach were established for the class of binary pairwise (Ising) models, yielding a simple, interesting characterization.
