Beschreibung

How the study of causality revolutionized science and the world

"Correlation does not imply causation." This mantra has been invoked by scientists for decades, and has led to a virtual prohibition on causal talk. But today, that taboo is dead. The causal revolution, sparked by Judea Pearl and his colleagues, has cut through a century of confusion and placed causality—the study of cause and effect—on a firm scientific basis. His work explains how we can know easy things, like whether it was rain or a sprinkler that made a sidewalk wet; and how to answer hard questions, like whether a drug cured an illness. Pearl's work enables us to know not just whether one thing causes another: it lets us explore the world that is and the worlds that could have been. It shows us the essence of human thought and key to artificial intelligence. Anyone who wants to understand either needs The Book of Why.

  • (4/5)
    So Dr. Pearl won the Turing Prize, which I think means he convinced a computer that he's human or something. The first part of the book is fascinating and informative. The author was involved directly in a lot of the history and it shows. Sometimes it almost shows too much, as in the author is almost bragging at times, but he does it in a way that doesn't really get annoying.

    The second part of the book where he goes into great detail about causal diagrams and their manipulations is cool, but not entertaining reading for me. I skipped around a lot in the last part of the book. Still worth the read, at least the first part.

    This is an engaging.exposition of a fascinating subject. It is as accessible as it can be for the non- mathematician. There are entertaining anecdotes and practical examples of the new science of causal reasoning in action.

    You can easily find his lecturer online that has some illustrations of causal diagrams.

    If you thought you were au current after tackling Bayes theorem, think again. Critical thinking will never be the same.
