SHORT TALK (20 minutes)

We describe a method for removing the effect of confounders to re-construct a latent quantity of interest. The method, referred to as half-sibling regression, is inspired by recent work in causal inference using additive noise models. We provide a theoretical justification and illustrate the potential of the method in a challenging astronomy application in the field of exoplanet detection.
