Prediction Algorithms with a Causal Interpretation

Time: 14.00 - 16.30

Sorry, this event has now ended.

This event will present the outcomes of a Turing Institute ‘Theory and Methods Challenge Fortnights in Data Science and AI’, held in Manchester in February 2020. A challenge team, comprising twelve academics in predictive modelling, machine learning, and causal inference, will share the findings from the challenge - including perspectives on 'counterfactual prediction' and pilot work to address some of the methodological challenges involved. This is now topical work, as such methods can be used for decision support in the covid-19 pandemic, and further events will be scheduled in the coming months to address emerging work in this area.

For participants less familiar with causal inference and prediction, we are holding a companion introductory workshop in the morning of the same day (11am - 1pm).

This event will be held virtually. Joining links will be distributed after sign-up through Eventbrite.
