报告摘要:
A main goal of machine learning is to discover statistical dependencies between random variables and use them to predict future observations. However, the aim of many scientific investigations is to infer how the data generating system behaves under interventions, which calls for causal structures. In this talk, I will first introduce our recent work on causal discovery from observational data. In the real world, data often have low-resolution, contain unobserved confounders, and are contaminated by measurement noise. I will show how to identify the underlying causal relations from such kind of incomplete data. Second, I will present our recent progress in addressing transfer learning/domain adaptation using causal models. The results demonstrate how causal information can be valuable for understanding distribution shift and developing more accurate predictive models.
