No Causation without representation!

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…See More

"Hmm, but in any job, you might only use a small subset of those skills, or skills not in that list. And employers might hire only based on your competency on that small subset. Why should they care if you don't know Perl if they never use it.…"

How complicated projects like building a skyscraper or a rocket or a bridge manage so many details?

It's a question I often wondered about as a child, as I marveled at NYC skyscrapers during my first visit there, or when I visited Cape Canaveral or the Golden Gate Bridge. I don't claim I will provide a full answer to this question in this short post. However, recently, I've been studying two types of tools that are very useful in handling the mindbogglingly numerous details of a complicated project. And I would like to tell you about those 2 tools here. So this is going to be a very limited…See More

Belief Propagation (Message Passing) for Classical and Quantum Bayesian Networks

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 Bayesian Networks (bnets).…See More

Decision Trees & Bayesian Networks

Decision Trees (DTs) are certainly cool and it is not my intention to belittle them here. Compared to Bayesian Networks (bnets), they seem easier to construct. In fact, I just wrote a poem dedicated to Decision Trees. It starts "I think that I shall never see an AI as lovely as a decision tree". DTs do have some drawbacks, but, like I said, the purpose of this blog post is not to criticize them.The real purpose of this post is to point out that there is a secret romance going on between…See More

Causal Reinforcement Learning under Bareinboim at Columbia Univ.

Elias BareinboimI recently wrote a popular article on Causal AI. Note that Causal AI is almost exclusively the province of Bayesian networks (bnets), not of their more puny brethren, neural networks (NNs). Indeed, Causal AI is based on Judea Pearl's theory of causality which is expressed via bnets, not NNs.Something that I didn't mention in my popular article because I didn't know it at…See More

Quantum Neural Net, an Oxymoron

Venn diagram showing overlap between "quantum" and "neural network"The term "quantum neural networks" is being used with increasing frequency by the quantum computing community. Maybe as a dishonest, bait-and-switch advertising strategy, this makes sense. However, from a scientific standpoint, "quantum neural network" is a very poor name choice for what is being alluded to here.Artificial Neural Networks, often called "Neural Nets" for short, are supposed to mimic the actual neurons in the…See More

Simpson’s Paradox, the Bane of Clinical Trials

(This article is now a chapter of my github proto-book Bayesuvius) Simpson's paradox is a recurring nightmare for all statisticians overseeing a clinical trial for a medicine. It is possible that if they leave out a certain "confounding" variable from a study, the study's conclusion on whether a medicine is effective or not, might be, without measuring that confounding variable, the opposite of what it would have been had that variable been measured. Statisticians have to enlist expert…See More
