Data scientists often get asked questions related to causality: (1) did recent PR coverage drive sign-ups, (2) does customer support increase sales, or (3) did improving the recommendation model drive revenue? Supporting company stakeholders requires every data scientist to learn techniques that can answer questions like these, which are centered around issues of causality and are solved with causal inference. In this project, you will learn the high level theory and intuition behind the four main causal inference techniques of controlled regression, regression discontinuity, difference in difference, and instrumental variables as well as some techniques at the intersection of machine learning and causal inference that are useful in data science called double selection and causal forests. These will help you rigorously answer questions like those above and become a better data scientist!

단계별 학습

작업 영역이 있는 분할 화면으로 재생되는 동영상에서 강사는 다음을 단계별로 안내합니다.

  1. Use Controlled / Fixed Effects Regression to estimate impact of customer satisfaction on customer revenue.

  2. Use Regression Discontinuity to estimate the impact of customer support on renewal probability.

  3. Use Difference in Difference to estimate the impact of raising prices on revenue.

  4. Use Instrumental Variables to see whether using the mobile app leads to increased customer retention.

  5. Use Double Selection to speed up AB tests and get more precise estimates.

  6. Use Causal Forests to find heterogeneous treatment effects separated by registration source for impact of discounts.
