Causal discovery and machine learning

Discovering causal relations from data lies at the heart of most scientific research today. In apparent contradiction with the adagio “correlation does not imply causation”, such causal knowledge can also be derived from purely observational data, instead of only from controlled experimentation. In this talk, I will sketch how insights from statistics and machine learning lead to novel approaches for robust discovery of causal relationships with applications in, among others, healthcare and genomics.
