In recent years, there is growing interest in integrating machine learning with causality, as both communities are realising that one can benefit from the advances of the other. In this talk, we first review fundamental concepts of causal inference in relation to key problems of machine learning to show how causality can contribute to machine learning. Then, since most work in causality is predicated on that causal variables are given, we discuss how to discover high-level causal variables from low-level observations by leveraging machine learning methods, which is a central problem for causality and AI. Finally, we showcase a series of recent work on designing practical algorithms to address this problem.
