Heterogeneity in potentially large-scale data can be beneficially exploited for causal inference and more robust prediction. The key idea relies on invariance and stability across different heterogeneous regimes or sub-populations. What we term as "anchor regression" opens some novel insights and connections between causality and protection (robustness) against worst case interventions in ...
