Models and Machines for Causal Inference and Decision Modeling

Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - Friday, January 18, 2019

All Day

Data Science Initiative

121 South Main Street, ICERM

Causal and mathematical models are widely used for decision making and policy evaluation at both the micro and macro levels. For example, causal models using large datasets are used to evaluate treatment efficacy in HIV; mathematical models are used to simulate the effects of prevention or policy measures to improve health outcomes or reduce the spread of infectious diseases. Entities such as the World Health Organization and UNAIDS rely on these models to set wide-ranging and high-impact policy related to treatment and prevention of infectious disease.
