The Quantum Physicist as Causal Detective
A Perimeter Institute Public Lecture on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7 at 4 pm PDT
What do data science and the foundations of quantum theory have to do with one another? A great deal, it turns out.
Causal inference is a branch of data science that focuses on a common problem across many disciplines: disentangling correlation and causation in statistical data. Meanwhile, quantum physicists have pondered this problem as part of a continuing effort to make sense of puzzling quantum phenomena.
In the first talk of Perimeter’s 2020/21 Public Lecture Series, Robert Spekkens and Elie Wolfe will explore what is happening at the intersection of these two fields and how thinking like a quantum physicist leads to new ways of separating cause and effect from correlation patterns in statistical data.
