The Signal Series event,
“The New Science of Cause and Effect: Causal Revolution Applied” took place virtually on January 25.
The ISPOR Signal Series welcomed Judea Pearl, professor of computer science and director of the Cognitive Systems Laboratory, Samueli School of Engineering, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA, the world-renowned computer scientist and philosopher, known for his world leading work on artificial intelligence (AI) and the development of Bayesian networks as well as his theory of causal and counterfactual inference. Dr. Pearl made a presentation on how causal models interact with data and work in scientific applications today, spanning the subjects of selection bias, personalized treatment effect, fusion of data from several sources (observational and experimental studies), and causality in observational studies.
Dr. Uwe Siebert will hosted a conversation with Dr. Pearl around health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) challenges with regard to application and opportunities of modern computing tools.
