Dear ISysE Professors and Students,
ISysE department invites you to attend the following seminar.
Speaker: Sanghack Lee, Postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University
Title: A Causal Perspective on Sequential Decision-Making Problems
Date & Time: April 1st(Mon), 2:00 pm
Place: E2-2 Bldg, #2122
Language: Korean (proceed with Skype webcam)
We look forward to your attendance and encourage you to forward this invitation to colleagues who may be interested in the topic.
With best regards,
Causal knowledge is sought after throughout data-driven fields due to its explanatory power and potential value to inform decision-making. If the targeted system is well-understood in terms of its causal components, one is able to design more precise and surgical interventions so as to bring certain desired outcomes about. In this talk I will first introduce general ideas on how Structural Causal Model provides a semantical framework to understand sequential decision-making problems. Then, I will focus on recent progress on a structural causal bandit, a sequential decision-making setting where the reward distributions of the arms exhibit a non-trivial dependence structure, which is governed by the underlying causal model of the domain. I will discuss a number of structural properties implied by the underlying causal model. I will conclude the talk by discussing future research directions.
