Event Details

We are pleased to announce our next event "Causality - Part II" on March 16th, 19h at Adevinta offices in Barcelona. Doors will open at 18:45. 

In our previous session about Causality, we introduced the topic and we reviewed when and how we could use A/B testing and causal inference models.  In this second session, we will first have Jordi Vitrià and Àlvaro Parafita presenting their insights about "Explainability with Causal Counterfactuals". After their presentation, we will have a round table with Montserrat Guillén and Llorenç Badiella, who will share their perspectives on some relevant issues such as how causal inference can be applied to business.

Jordi Vitrià is Full Professor at the Mathematics and Computer Science Department, Universitat de Barcelona. His research interests focus on enriching deep learning models with explainability and uncertainty modelling. He is leading the DataScience@UB Tecnio Center, a multidisciplinary group of researchers that are interested in knowledge transfer.

Álvaro Parafita is a Data Scientist and Ph.D. student in Deep Learning Explainability. He has worked as a Machine Learning consultant for Ofertia and Satellogic. His most recent research focuses on the use of Causal Theory for generative modelling, black-box explainability and algorithmic fairness.

Montserrat Guillen is Full Professor at the Department of Econometrics of the University of Barcelona. She is the Director of the Riskcenter-IREA at UB. She is an honorary visiting professor at the Faculty of Actuarial Science and Insurance at City, University of London. She works on a project funded by Fundacion BBVA research for big data and she was awarded by  ICREA Academia.

Llorenç Badiella is the Director of the Statistical Consulting Service (SCS) at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) since 2011, where he coordinates a team of 8 statisticians/mathematicians offering consulting services to academic research groups and public or private companies. He is also an Adjunct Professor of the Mathematics Department of the UAB.

This talk is co-organized with Barcelona Data Science and Machine Learning Meetup https://www.meetup.com/barcelona-data-science-machine-learning/

This event could not be possible without the collaboration of Adevinta. We will meet at Adevinta offices in Barcelona at Carrer Ciutat de Granada 150. Once there, you will have to go to Auditori on 9th Floor.
