For the paper presentations in course week 8, you need to do the following:
- Choose a research paper on causality & causal inference, alone or together with a partner.
- You will present the main points of the paper in 10-15 minutes during the last week of the course.
- Your goal is to communicate the main point of the paper using concepts we have developed in this course
- Focus on communicating a) which problem is being solved, b) which solution was chosen, and c) whether the goal of the paper was met.
- Papers will be presented in groups of 1 or 2 students
- Submit this assignment with a text entry indicating your selected paper (if you work in a group, you should both submit this assignment—name who you will be working with)
