Discovering causal structure from observational data in the presence of latent variables remains an active research area. Constraint-based causal discovery algorithms are relatively efficient at discovering such causal models from data using independence tests. Typically, however, they derive and output only one such model. In contrast, Bayesian methods can generate and probabilistically score multiple models, outputting the most probable one; however, they are often computationally infeasible… CONTINUE READING
