OSSM Tutorial: Causal inference over social media

Here are the slides for my tutorial on applying causal inference to social media timelines, presented at the Workshop on Observational Studies in Social Media (OSSM) at ICWSM 2017.  The talk emphasizes counterfactual intuitions and highlights common pitfalls.  This tutorial steps through the process of analyzing social media timelines with a focus on treatment identification, covariate featurization and outcome analysis applicable to a broad class of conditioned inference algorithms.   tutorial_kiciman_ossm17
