Causality is the principle that there is a cause for everything that happens
Traditional AI is Broken
Traditional machine learning AI is fundamentally broken. Results are only as good as the data we provide for training, so the outcomes are always based on the how we did things in the past and highly dependent on the quantity and quality of data available.
Another challenge is correlation and the potential to ‘discover’ false positives because its often unclear exactly which data is relevant, and which is not. Commonly referred to as a ‘data first’ approach this can lead to hidden bias in the outcomes we produce.
The Problem with Correlation
Data Quality and Data First
Data science typically takes a data-first approach looking for correlations without necessarily truly understanding the problem domain or data quality.
Large Datasets Only
By definition, machine learning it is constrained by the data we feed it, typically requiring extremely large datasets which are critical to accurate results. We are often faced with problems
Bias and Variance
Using correlation to determine patterns that are used as a basis for decision is fundamentally flawed because unless we have data to represent every significant cause of an effect on our result and we’re able to eradicate backdoor paths and confounders, the probability of bias is high.
Explainability and Transparency
ML algorithms are typically implemented from open-source AI libraries where the heavy work is done in a black box. This approach has a lack of explainability because without truly understanding what is in the black box it’s impossible to say ‘why’.
Causality Has the Answer
Thinking about the world, or more importantly your problem domain, in terms of cause and effect resolves many of the challenges faced with traditional machine learning.
Capturing the scope of your problem domain through causal modeling provides an easy way to collaborate within your team and business. Geminos Causeway provides a multi-user platform to enable collaboration and capture domain knowledge is a simple intuitive way.
Reduced Bias and Fair
The science of causal algebra has causal analysis and validation built in to eradicate bias. Geminos Causeway gives you access to these powerful techniques without having to worry about math.
Adaptive to Change
Because of Causeways end-to-end traceability
(model <> application), changes to the causal model can be rippled through data to the AI implementation and visa-versa. This process is facilitated through the Causeway platform.
AI solutions built using causality are intrinsically explainable through the causal models. There is absolute traceability from each event to related data and ultimately AI functions and predictions.
Rather than limiting human-machine interaction, Causal AI allows a tighter partnership and sharing of knowledge
Small or Large Datasets
Geminos Causeway can apply its discovery algorithms to only the information that matters, even small amounts of data. Coupled with human input, it can fill in gaps in data to work with any kind of dataset, big or small.
