AbstractIn statistics, we are used to search for the best predictors of some random variable. In many situations, however, we are interested in predicting a system's behavior under manipulations. For such an analysis, we require knowledge about the underlying causal structure of the system. In this course, we study concepts and theory behind causal inference.
ObjectiveAfter this course, you should be able to
- understand the language and concepts of causal inference
- know the assumptions under which one can infer causal relations from observational and/or interventional data
- describe and apply different methods for causal structure learning
- given data and a causal structure, derive causal effects and predictions of interventional experiments
ContentThe material covered in this course has a significant overlap with the
material that has been covered in 401-3620-22L Student Seminar in
Statistics: Causality FS2023.
LiteratureParts of this course will be based on the book "Elements of Causal Inference" (MIT Press, open access). More details will follow.
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisites: basic knowledge of probability theory and regression
