18 February 2019, Causal Inference Lab

Title: Causal Inference Lab reading group
Date: Monday 18 February 2019
Time: 13:00-15:00
Location: ILLC PostDoc Meeting Room F2.02, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

The ILLC has a new group, called the Causal Inference Lab, dedicated to investigating causality. The group hosts a reading group every second Monday, 13:00-15:00, which everyone interested in causality is very welcome to attend.

For our next session, Monday 18 February 13:00-15:00, we will read Rachael Briggs' paper, 'Interventionist Counterfactuals' (https://doi.org/10.1007/s11098-012-9908-5). Briggs applies causal models to represent the truth-conditionals of counterfactuals such as "If you had taken the train or the metro, you would have arrived on time."

If you are interested in discussing causal inference with us, please do come along!
