The Seven Tools of Causal Inference, with Reflections on Machine Learning - March, 2019 By Judea Pearl

THE DRAMATIC SUCCESS In machine learning has led to an explosion of artificial intelligence (AI) applications and increasing expectations for autonomous systems that exhibit human-level intelligence. These expectations have, however, met with fundamental obstacles that cut across many application areas. One such obstacle is adaptability, or robustness. Machine learning researchers have noted current systems lack the ability to recognize or react to new circumstances they have not been specifically programmed or trained for.
