• Using Unlabeled Data to Discover Bivariate Causality with Deep Restricted Boltzmann Machines

    1 month ago - By IEEE/ACM

    An important question in microbiology is whether treatment causes changes in gut flora, and whether it also affects metabolism. The reconstruction of causal relations purely from non-temporal observational data is challenging. We address the problem of causal inference in a bivariate case, where the joint distribution of two variables is observed. We consider, in particular, data on discrete domains. The state-of-the-art causal inference methods for continuous data suffer from high computational complexity. Some modern approaches are not suitable for categorical data, and others need to...
