CIRG Seminar: Edward Kennedy

October 4, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Edward Kennedy, Assistant Professor of Statistics and Data Science at Carnegie Mellon University, will be presenting "Influence Functions and Machine Learning in Causal Inference." Abstract: This short course will cover the basics of efficient nonparametric estimation in causal inference. In particular we will discuss nonparametric efficiency bounds for causal estimands, and efficient bias-corrected estimators based on influence functions. Importantly, these estimators can yield fast rates of convergence and normal limiting distributions, even in complex nonparametric models where nuisance functions (e.g.,…
