Workshop in Biostatistics presents "Invariance, causality, and replicability"

Topic: 
Invariance, causality, and replicability
Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 1:30pm
Venue: 
Medical School Office Building (MSOB), Rm x303
Speaker: 
Dominik Rothenhäusler (Stanford)
Abstract / Description: 

Heterogeneity across sub-populations can be beneficially exploited for causal inference and to improve the replicability of feature selections across distributions. The key is to encourage models to exhibit invariance across settings and interventions. The novel methodology potentially offers more robustness and 'causal-oriented' interpretation of results, compared to standard regression and classification methods.
