Ving multivariate cases The authors consider analyzing statistical asymmetries between cause and effect

This book provides a nice introduction into today s causal inference research For A Person Like a person like who is vaguely interested in the topic but 1 ind classical writings like Pearl s to be difficult to understand because they are not written in the language of modern statistics machine learning and 2 want to get an overview of today s rapid diverse research on the topic this book is a perfect it Authors explain key ideas of causal inference in modern terminologies of machine learning and I ound it much readable than others They also A concise and self contained introduction to causal inference increasingly important in data science and machine learningThe mathematization of causality is a relatively recent development and has become increasingly important in data science and machine
LEARNING THIS BOOK OFFERS A SELF CONTAINED AND CONCISE This book offers a self contained and concise to causal models and how to learn them rom data After explaining the need or causal models and discussing some of the principles underlying causal inference the book teaches.
