Causality has a long history, providing it with many principled approaches to identify a causal effect (or even distill cause from effect). However, these approaches are often restricted to very specific situations, requiring very specific assumptions. This contrasts heavily with recent advances in machine learning. Real-world problems aren’t granted the luxury of making strict assumptions, yet still require causal thinking to solve. Armed with the rigor of causality, and the can-do-attitude of machine learning, we believe the time is ripe to start working towards solving real-world problems.
