Introduction to Causal Inference in the Ride-Hailing Business – Alessandro Romano, Free Now


Session Outline

Designing an experiment shows us how many constraints and limitations we have to deal with. Every business requires a different way to set up experimentations, therefore disparate techniques to test our solutions. Standard approaches in statistics, such as regression analysis, are concerned with quantifying how changes in X are associated with changes in Y. Unlike methods that are concerned with associations only, causal inference approaches can answer the question of why Y changes.

Key Takeaways

  • Answering the question of why changes in X are associated with changes in Y
  • Correlation doesn’t mean causation
  • Challenge and enhance correlation results
