ASSET Seminar: ML for Causal Inference, Konrad Kording, University of Pennsylvania

December 14, 2022 at 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

ABSTRACT

Machine learning traditionally does not get at causality and causality research traditionally treats machine learning as a dangerous set of highly biased estimators. In my talk I will talk about our lab’s efforts to use machine learning as a component of more traditional quasi-experimental techniques. I will also discuss meta-learning approaches to causal inference, approaches where the estimators themselves are learned. I will lament the relative lack of interactions between the various subfields of the causal inference space.
