Title: Learning Decision Rules with Observational Data
Author(s): Xinkun Nie* and Stefan Wager
Companies: Stanford University and Stanford University

In clinical research, practitioners seek to use observational data to learn personalized treatment assignment and timing policies that would maximize patients' health outcomes. In this talk, I will present recent advances on heterogeneous treatment effect estimation and sequential decision making with observational data. In particular, I'll discuss how powerful machine learning tools can be leveraged for these tasks.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
