Raj Agrawal, Chandler Squires, Karren Yang, Karthik Shanmugam, Caroline Uhler
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Given that randomized experiments are usually expensive to perform, we propose a general framework and theory based on optimal Bayesian experimental design to select experiments for targeted causal discovery  ...  Determining the causal structure of a set of variables is critical for both scientific inquiry and decision-making. However, this is often challenging in practice due to limited interventional data.  ...  Concluding Remarks We proposed Active Budgeted Causal Design Strategy (ABCD-Strategy), an experimental method based on optimal Bayesian experimental design with provable guarantees on approximation quality  ...
