“Correlation is not causation”, or so the old trope goes.
This statement is true if we are talking about correlations revealed by familiar methods that are used to analyze data. In this talk, I want to put a new spin on this statement. I will argue that a new technology, quantum generated density maps, changes the way we look at complex data. The main point is that visualizing all the correlations hidden in a set of data, their shapes and their relationship to one another, can force us to ask questions that strongly suggest causal relationships. To make this point I will discuss the analysis of melanoma data provided to Quantum Insights Inc. by Genentech.
