This award funds a workshop and symposium on Causal Inference, an interdisciplinary subject that has engaged a range of disciplines, including philosophy, mathematics, computer science, neuroscience, psychology, epidemiology, cognitive science, sociology and economics. Participants will include prominent outside speakers and as well as scholars from the North and South Campus, including the Social Sciences Division, Humanities Division, Physical Sciences Division, Life Sciences Division, Anderson School of Management, Fielding School of Public Health, David Geffen School of Medicine and the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. Importantly, UCLA has had a leading role on this topic, as exemplified by the pioneering work of Judea Pearl on the development of causal Bayesian networks and on probabilistic approaches to artificial intelligence. There are exciting opportunities at the interface between a number of field that the events proposed will explore and foment.
