Bernhard Scholkopf (@bschoelkopf) just published a single author paper titled "Causality for Machine Learning" (; this should probably at the top of the reading list for many people interested in machine learning / AI; @yudapearl @eliasbareinboim

Nov 26 2019 Judea Pearl

A very comprehensive, delightful and inspiring paper. Recommended to ALL, not just MANY ML/AI folks. Note also that @bschoelkopf does not perceive me as "polarizing the field" as suggested by @ylecun here: SCM unifies, invites and educates. #Bookofwhy

A big problem with #AI is that it hasn't read and couldn't understand @yudapearl's Book of Why. This easy to understand essay by @bschoelkopf (and inspired by Pearl) takes us through the gaps in ML thinking and reasoning, cause and effect @MPI_IS

This is probably the most succinct summary of various ways in which causality could be useful for machine learning by @bschoelkopf Highly recommended.

Nov 26 2019 ML Review

Causality for Machine Learning By @bschoelkopf Mostly non-technical intro to key causal models and how they can contribute to resolving open ML problems like generalization across domains or "thinking" (i.e., acting in an imagined space)

Nov 26 2019 Judea Pearl

There's much truth to what you're saying. The idea that there are theoretical impediments to ML methods is hard for ML folks to internalize.And repeated assurances that causal inference is just one aspect of what ML has been doing all along do not encourage them to try.#Bookofwhy

Causality for Machine Learning. Tubingen at it again. (Keeps surprising me how such a small place gave rise to such a great research group. I keep wondering what's the recipe. @MPI_IS )

@pradeu Agree, Thomas. Casuality can't be emphasized enough. @yudapearl's book is my favorite source. And it's now coming up with #AI (that it can't)

Today's #MachineLearning paper is @bschoelkopf's recent philosophical essay 'Causality for Machine Learning' ( Given an unlabelled scatter plot in arbitrary units, can you tell if X causes Y? Y causes X? There is a common unobserved causal factor? 1/3
