Causal Inference Tutorial at KDD 2018


I greatly enjoyed presenting our tutorial on causal inference and counterfactual reasoning, with Amit Sharma, at KDD 2018 this week. There was a lot of interest — the room was standing room only — and the questions from the audience were deep and engaging.

We’ve posted our tutorial slides. The tutorial covers a conceptual introduction to counterfactual reasoning, including potential outcomes and causal graphs; basic methods for observational studies and natural experiments; and methods for validating assumptions and refuting results.

Thanks everyone,
