Causal Analysis and Policy Assessment with
Bayesian Networks and BayesiaLab

A Free 2-Hour Workshop on Causality for Policy Analysts and Researchers
Monday, November 30, 15:00-17:00

The objective of this workshop is to provide a practical framework for better policy assessment and causal analysis. The proposed approach includes Directed Acyclic Graphs and Bayesian Networks. The techniques to be presented in this seminar can help address common challenges regarding causal inference from observational data.

This workshop is a "live" version of Chapter 10 in our new book, Bayesian Networks & BayesiaLab (download your free copy here).

Date and Location

November 30, 2015, 15:00 to 17:00
Academia - SGH Campus
Seminar Room L1-S1
