Causation is a hot topic in data science right now as people realize the limits of Big Data. We’ve all heard “correlation is not causation,” yet many companies only measure correlations that deliver little value. Causal inference tools can transform simple correlations into business insights that drive change. Unlike machine learning, which aims to predict the future, causal inference tools are designed to improve the future. A clever startup that understands causation can improve its products and services in ways that separate you from Big Data competitors. This session will introduce you to causal inference and “causal discovery” methods that link machine learning with causation and provide real-world examples of how they can deliver value to you and your clients.
