Machine Learning and Causality: Building Efficient, Reliable Models for Decision-Making

September 15, 2021

All seminars will be held in-person in IOE 1680 as well as virtually on Zoom. For the Zoom link and password, RSVP at To view all of our upcoming seminars, see Increasingly practitioners are looking to ML-based causal and predictive models to provide personalized decision guidance. However, current techniques for causal inference typically rely on having access to large amounts of data, limiting their applicability to data-constrained settings such as healthcare where collection of data might be prohibitively costly. In addition, empirical evidence has shown that most predictive models are insufficiently robust with respect to shifts at test time. This…
