Recently, someone (not me) suggested in a tweet to Judea Pearl, let's have a Kaggle** competition on the topic of Causal AI. I love the idea, so I am trying to promote it with this blog post. Big Pharma could fund such a competition for much less than what they pay for a TV commercial, and the technical insights they might gain from this exercise might prove to be invaluable to the pharmaceutical industry.…Continue
Daphne Koller is the leader of a mega-startup (Insitro) that uses Machine Learning (do they use Causal Bayesian Networks???) to do drug research. She also co-founded Coursera with Andrew Ng, and she co-wrote with Nir Friedman a 1200 page book about Probabilistic Graphical Models (e.g., Bayesian Networks)
Judea Pearl won a Turing award (commonly…Continue
My free book Bayesuvius now has 39 chapters. I had been postponing writing the chapters on Pearl causality until now, because I consider them to be the most important chapters in the whole book, and I wanted to nail them, to the best of my limited abilities. Well, I finally bit the bullet and wrote them. Please check them out, and send me feedback. I would especially like your opinion on the chapters…Continue
My FREE book about Bayesian Networks, Bayesuvius, continues to grow. It currently has 33 chapters. The purpose of this blog post is to announce the release of a new Bayesuvius chapter on Belief Propagation (BP).
Belief Propagation (BP) (aka Message Passing)was first proposed in 1982 by Judea Pearl to simplify the exact evaluation of probability marginals of…Continue
