When the Fundamental Problem of Causal Inference Ain't No Problem
The Fundamental Problem of Causal Inference Consider the potential outcomes Yi(t)Y_i(t)Yi(t) and Yi(t′)Y_i(t')Yi(t′), where Yi(t)Y_i(t)Yi(t) denotes the outcome YYY that unit (individual) iii would have if unit iii receives treatment ttt. If you prefer do-notation, P(Y∣do(T=t),i)P \big(Y | \text{do}(T = t), i \big)P(Y∣do(T=t),i) is the do-notation equivalent of Yi(t)Y_i(t)Yi(t). The...

A Modern Perspective -
TL;DR and Preamble TL;DR: It is not always necessary to trade bias for variance when increasing model complexity. Preamble: the charge of the electron, Millikan’s experiment, and anchoring Richard Feynman made an insightful observation about the history of measurements of the charge of the electron: Millikan’s first measurement was noticeably...

A flowchart and a list of short book reviews -
Disclaimer: I have only read 4 of the 9 books in the flowchart below. However, I list the other 5 in the flowchart because I think I know enough about them to do so. You can read short reviews of the ones I read below under the “Mini Reviews” heading....
