The impact of computing systems | Causal inference in practice

Abstract

Computing and machine learning systems are affecting almost all parts of our lives and the society at large. How do we formulate and estimate the impact of these systems? This talk introduces causal inference as a methodology to answer such questions and provides examples of applying it to estimating impact of recommender systems, online social media feeds, search engines and interventions in public health in India.
