Tributes; v.11


Mostly computer scientists, but also scholars in fields ranging from mathematics to political science, honor artificial intelligence pioneer Pearl in 35 papers, five of them non-technical reminiscences. Their topics include the mechanical generation of admissible heuristics, paranoia versus overconfidence in imperfect-information games, graphical models of the visual cortex, extending Bayesian networks to the open-universe class, effect heterogeneity and bias in main-effect-only regression models, Pearl causality and the value of control, and fond memories from an old student.
