See details in the full note.I was asked to comment on a recent article by Angus Deaton and Nancy Cartwright (D which touches on the foundations of causal inference.D main theme is as follows: argue that any special status for RCTs is unwarranted. Which method is most likely to yield a good causal inference depends on what we are trying to discover as well as onwhat is already known. (Quoted from their introduction)As a veteran challenger of the supremacy of the RCT, I welcome D challenge wholeheartedly.
The equations relating to the characterisation of supercapacitor materials and devices are also introduced in Chapter 1. In the first half of Chapter 2, the basics of electrochemistry and electrochemical methods used in this work are discussed. In the second half, the preparation of the cellulose nanocrystals is reported.
The post below is written for the upcoming Spanish translation of The Book of Why, which was announced today. It expresses my firm belief that the current data fitting direction taken by Science is temporary (read my lips!), that the future of Science lies in causal data interpretation and that we should prepare ourselves for the backlash swing.Much has been said about how ill prepared our health care system was in coping with catastrophic outbreaks like COVID 19. Yet viewed from the corner of my expertise, the ill preparedness can also be seen as a failure of information technology to keep track of and interpret the outpour of data that have arrived from multiple and conflicting sources, corrupted by noise and omission, some by sloppy collection and some by deliberate misreporting, AI could and should have equipped society with intelligent data fusion technology, to interpret such conflicting pieces of information and reason its way out of the confusion.Speaking from the perspective of causal inference research, I have been part of a team that has developed a complete theoretical underpinning for such problems; a development that is briefly described in Chapter 10 of The Book of Why.
Lesson: A loyal community is a powerful thing highlighting customers who live your brand makes others want to live your brand, too. Encourage customers to snap photos that capture your brand values, and synthesize them into a Facebook cover photo, a T shirt design or art to decorate your store. When choosing a hashtag, include a key brand value with broad, organic applications (see also: Tiffany Co.’s TrueLovePictures and Nike’s MakeItCount)..
