'Wonderful ... Illuminating ... Fun to read' Daniel Kahneman,
author of Thinking, Fast and Slow A pioneer of artificial
intelligence shows how the study of causality revolutionized
science and the world 'Correlation does not imply causation.' This
mantra was invoked by scientists for decades in order to avoid
taking positions as to whether one thing caused another, such as
smoking and cancer and carbon dioxide and global warming. But
today, that taboo is dead. The causal revolution, sparked by
world-renowned computer scientist Judea Pearl and his colleagues,
has cut through a century of confusion and placed cause and effect
on a firm scientific basis. Now, Pearl and science journalist Dana
Mackenzie explain causal thinking to general readers for the first
time, showing how it allows us to explore the world that is and the
worlds that could have been. It is the essence of human and
artificial intelligence. And just as Pearl's discoveries have
enabled machines to think better, The Book of Why explains how we
can think better.
