Title: Machine Learning for Causal Inference
Abstract: This talk will provide an overview of the problem
of causal inference and current approaches to address it. We
will discuss the applications of machine learning and deep
learning to this problem space, with examples from economics
and the social sciences. We will also touch upon the
challenges involved in validating solutions and some tests
that can be performed to build confidence in causal results.
