The past several decades have seen exponential growth in causal inference approaches and their applications. In this commentary, we provide our top-10 list of emerging and exciting areas of research in causal inference. These include methods for high-dimensional data and precision medicine, causal machine learning, causal discovery, and others. These methods are not meant to be an exhaustive list; instead, we hope that this list will serve as a springboard for stimulating the development of new research.
