Disentangled Representation for Causal Mediation Analysis

1 code implementation19 Feb 2023 Ziqi Xu, Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Jixue Liu, Lin Liu, Ke Wang

Causal mediation analysis is a method that is often used to reveal direct and indirect effects.

Causal Inference with Conditional Instruments using Deep Generative Models

no code implementations29 Nov 2022 Debo Cheng, Ziqi Xu, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Jixue Liu, Thuc Duy Le

The instrumental variable (IV) approach is a widely used way to estimate the causal effects of a treatment on an outcome of interest from observational data with latent confounders.

Data-Driven Causal Effect Estimation Based on Graphical Causal Modelling: A Survey

no code implementations20 Aug 2022 Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Jixue Liu, Thuc Duy Le

In recent years, research has emerged to use a search strategy based on graphical causal modelling to discover useful knowledge from data for causal effect estimation, with some mild assumptions, and has shown promose in tackling the practical challenge.

Disentangled Representation with Causal Constraints for Counterfactual Fairness

no code implementations19 Aug 2022 Ziqi Xu, Jixue Liu, Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Ke Wang

Much research has been devoted to the problem of learning fair representations; however, they do not explicitly the relationship between latent representations.

Explanatory causal effects for model agnostic explanations

no code implementations23 Jun 2022 Jiuyong Li, Ha Xuan Tran, Thuc Duy Le, Lin Liu, Kui Yu, Jixue Liu

This paper studies the problem of estimating the contributions of features to the prediction of a specific instance by a machine learning model and the overall contribution of a feature to the model.

Ancestral instrument method for causal inference without a causal graph

no code implementations11 Jan 2022 Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Jiji Zhang, Thuc Duy Le, Jixue Liu

Conditional IV has been proposed to relax the requirement of standard IV by conditioning on a set of observed variables (known as a conditioning set for a conditional IV).

Dependency-based Anomaly Detection: Framework, Methods and Benchmark

no code implementations13 Nov 2020 Sha Lu, Lin Liu, Jiuyong Li, Thuc Duy Le, Jixue Liu

To show the effectiveness of DepAD, we compare two DepAD methods with nine state-of-the-art anomaly detection methods, and the results show that DepAD methods outperform comparison methods in most cases.

Sufficient Dimension Reduction for Average Causal Effect Estimation

no code implementations14 Sep 2020 Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Jixue Liu

Having a large number of covariates can have a negative impact on the quality of causal effect estimation since confounding adjustment becomes unreliable when the number of covariates is large relative to the samples available.

A general framework for causal classification

no code implementations25 Mar 2020 Jiuyong Li, Weijia Zhang, Lin Liu, Kui Yu, Thuc Duy Le, Jixue Liu

We also propose a general framework for causal classification, by using off-the-shelf supervised methods for flexible implementations.

Towards unique and unbiased causal effect estimation from data with hidden variables

no code implementations24 Feb 2020 Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Kui Yu, Thuc Duy Lee, Jixue Liu

Based on the theorems, two algorithms are proposed for finding the proper adjustment sets from data with hidden variables to obtain unbiased and unique causal effect estimation.

Causal query in observational data with hidden variables

no code implementations28 Jan 2020 Debo Cheng, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Jixue Liu, Kui Yu, Thuc Duy Le

In this paper, we develop a theorem for using local search to find a superset of the adjustment (or confounding) variables for causal effect estimation from observational data under a realistic pretreatment assumption.

Linking Graph Entities with Multiplicity and Provenance

no code implementations13 Aug 2019 Jixue Liu, Selasi Kwashie, Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Michael Bewong

The graph model is versatile, thus, it is capable of handling multiple values for an attribute or a relationship, as well as the provenance descriptions of the values.

Identify treatment effect patterns for personalised decisions

no code implementations14 Jun 2019 Jiuyong Li, Lin Liu, Shisheng Zhang, Saisai Ma, Thuc Duy Le, Jixue Liu

The existing interpretable modelling methods take a top-down approach to search for subgroups with heterogeneous treatment effects and they may miss the most specific and relevant context for an individual.

An exploration of algorithmic discrimination in data and classification

no code implementations6 Nov 2018 Jixue Liu, Jiuyong Li, Feiyue Ye, Lin Liu, Thuc Duy Le, Ping Xiong

The paper uses real world data sets to demonstrate the existence of discrimination and the independence between the discrimination of data sets and the discrimination of classification models.
