    Dear Colleagues/Friends

    We are pleased to deliver the following event through our (Virtual & Free) Seminar Series: Frontiers of Big Data, AI and Analytics.

    Time: 19 January 2022 10:00AM - 11:30AM (Australian Eastern Daylight Time (GMT+11)).

    Discussion theme: An Expansive View of Experimentation

    Speaker: Dr. Sean Taylor (Rideshare Labs at Lyft)

    Abstract of the talk: Testing product and algorithmic changes via A/B tests is common practice, but more complex experiments are still relatively rare. In this talk, Sean will lay out a variety of ways in which we leverage randomization to estimate more relevant, complex, and useful quantities of interest. Generalizing from the special case of binary treatments to multiple continuous treatments, instruments, and contextual policies are natural extensions to an already proven architecture for generating knowledge and decisions. Sean will discuss how randomization provides a natural complement to machine learning models powering policy decisions.
