Books

We are writing a book on causal reasoning with an explicit focus on computing systems. We will be posting book chapters here as we complete them.

Update: The first chapter is out! Do share your feedback in the comments.

Causal Reasoning: Fundamentals and Machine Learning Applications

Other great books
