Abstract: The development of Bayesian Networks, so people tell me, marked a turning point in the way uncertainty is handled in computer systems. For me, this development was a stepping stone towards a more profound transition, from reasoning about beliefs to reasoning about causal and counterfactual relationships. In this talk, I will survey the milestones of this journey, and summarize the practical and conceptual problems that we can solve today and could not address two decades ago.
Please note that this is the only event of the entire conference program that will be held off-campus.
