Efficient Local Causal Discovery Based on Markov Blanket

3 Oct 2019Shuai YangHao WangXuegang hu

We study the problem of local causal discovery learning which identifies direct causes and effects of a target variable of interest in a causal network. The existing constraint-based local causal discovery approaches are inefficient, since these approaches do not take a triangular structure formed by a given variable and its child variables into account in learning local causal structure, and hence need to spend much time in distinguishing several direct effects...
