DoWhy: Addressing Challenges in Expressing and Validating Causal Assumptions

DSA ADS Course - 2021

DoWhy, Causal Assumptions, Causal Inference, Causal Data Science, Machine Learning

Discuss successful application of causal inference techniques.  As computing systems are more frequently and more actively intervening in societally critical domains such as healthcare, education, and governance, it is critical to correctly predict and understand the causal effects of these interventions. Without an A/B test, conventional machine learning methods, built on pattern recognition and correlational analyses, are insufficient for decision-making.

Cognitive flexibility and humility is magic sauce to avoiding and mitigating confirmation bias and optimal decision-making.
