Join us virtually on September 28 at the next Signal Series event, “The New Science of Cause and Effect: Causal Revolution Applied.”

The ISPOR Signal Series welcomes 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 will make 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, and causality in observational studies.

Professor William Crown, distinguished research scientist, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, USA and former ISPOR President, will host a conversation with Dr Pearl around health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) challenges with regard to application and opportunities of modern computing tools.
