Prof. Judea Pearl 2011 Harvey Prize Laureate delivered a lecture in the faculty of Computer Science at the Technion. Advances in graphical models and the logic of causation have given rise to new ways in which scientists analyze cause-effect relationships. The talk traces the chronology of these developments, and presents several applications where causal and counterfactual reasoning has benefited problem areas in the empirical sciences, including policy evaluation, mediating-pathways analysis, experimental generalizability, credit and blame analysis, and personal decision making.
