XPROAX-Local explanations for text classification with progressive neighborhood approximation [article]

Yi Cai, Arthur Zimek, Eirini Ntoutsi
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Our work focuses on textual data and our explanations consist of both word-level explanations from the original instance (intrinsic) and the neighborhood (extrinsic) and factual- and counterfactual-instances  ...  Several attempts have been made to construct a better neighborhood for high dimensional data, like texts, by using generative autoencoders.  ...  We also thank Philip Naumann for the insightful discussions.  ...

Cultural Capital and Educational Inequality: A Counterfactual Analysis

Mads Jæger, Kristian Karlson
2018 Sociological Science  
These findings are consistent with cultural mobility theory (which argues that low-SES children have a higher return to cultural capital than high-SES children) but not with cultural reproduction theory  ...  We use National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 (NLSY79) data and a counterfactual approach to test the macro-level implications of cultural reproduction and cultural mobility theory.  ...  We thank the participants at these events for their excellent comments.  ...

Enhancing Counterfactual Classification via Self-Training [article]

Ruijiang Gao, Max Biggs, Wei Sun, Ligong Han
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We may only observe outcomes for the chosen actions, but not the counterfactual outcomes associated with other alternatives.  ...  In addition, we show input consistency loss can further improve CST performance which is shown in recent theoretical analysis of pseudolabeling.  ...  By doing so, we have the full knowledge of counterfactual outcomes for evaluation. Data statistics are summarized in the Appendix.  ...

Poincare: Recommending Publication Venues via Treatment Effect Estimation [article]

Ryoma Sato, Makoto Yamada, Hisashi Kashima
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Choosing a publication venue for an academic paper is a crucial step in the research process.  ...  We estimate the number of citations a paper will receive if the paper is published in each venue and recommend the venue where the paper has the most potential impact.  ...  This was because we evaluated the methods using only factual observations.  ...

VACA: Design of Variational Graph Autoencoders for Interventional and Counterfactual Queries [article]

Pablo Sanchez-Martin, Miriam Rateike, Isabel Valera
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Finally, we apply VACA to evaluate counterfactual fairness in fair classification problems, as well as to learn fair classifiers without compromising performance.  ...  As a result, and as shown by our empirical results, VACA accurately approximates the interventional and counterfactual distributions on diverse SCMs.  ...  The authors thank for the generous funding support. The authors also thank the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS) for supporting Pablo Sańchez Martín.  ...

Targeted Maximum Likelihood Estimation for Dynamic and Static Longitudinal Marginal Structural Working Models

Maya Petersen, Joshua Schwab, Susan Gruber, Nello Blaser, Michael Schomaker, Mark van der Laan
2014 Journal of Causal Inference  
Data from the International Epidemiological Databases to Evaluate AIDS, Southern Africa are analyzed to investigate this question using both TML and IPW estimators.  ...  We compare this pooled estimator to a stratified TMLE (Schnitzer et al. 2014 ) that is based on estimating the intervention-specific mean separately for each intervention of interest.  ...  As a consequence, our TMLE will be a consistent estimator of ψ 0 if either is consistent for Q 0 or g n is consistent for g 0 [38] .  ...
