Research Project

In the recent years, causality has grown from a nebulous concept into a mathematical theory based on the concept of probabilstic graphical modeling. Nevertheless, the complexity of the theoretical concepts and the requirements of current algorithms hinders the application of causal inference in practise. Therefore,  our research project Data-Driven Causal Inference adresses these challenges by improvements in both the application of statistical concepts and the acceleration of hard- and software.
