TOP REVIEWS FROM A CRASH COURSE IN CAUSALITY: INFERRING CAUSAL EFFECTS FROM OBSERVATIONAL DATA
The course is very simply explained, definitely a great introduction to the subject. There are some missing links, but minor compared to overall usefulness of the course.
This course is really fantastic for all levels. Very thorough explanations and helpful illustrations. Many thanks for putting this together!
I enjoyed the course a lot and I think I took a lot from it as well. The quizzes and computer projects were appropriate, and the resourcees posted were very useful.
very good content. Story line is highly concise. However, Lecturer could be more stream-lined the the way of explaining. He sure is a skilled guy, however.
