Jonas PETERS (University of Copenhagen) – “The Impossibility of Conditional Independence Testing and Causality in Dynamical Systems

Abstract: In this talk, we (1) discuss in which sense conditional independence testing for continuous random variables is an unsolvable statistical problem. (2) We also introduce CausalKinetiX, a framework that aims at learning the underlying structure in dynamical systems by trading off invariance and predictability. The talk contains joint work with Rajen Shah, Niklas Pfister, and Stefan Bauer. No prior knowledge about causality is required.
