We bring together programs, schools, and departments from across campus to create rich educational opportunities and ignite groundbreaking research to meet society's greatest challenges.
Originally from southern California, Olivia first came to Berkeley as an English major. She hadn’t been exposed to coding prior to coming to Berkeley. While working in the Student Learning Center on campus as a writing tutor during her sophomore year, she became interested in data science she was able to take that teaching experience and training and apply it in very fulfilling ways as an Undergraduate Student Instructor (UGSI) for Data 8.
UC Berkeley Statistics Professor Deborah Nolan readily admits that writing is difficult for her, as well for many of her students. To help students and others better communicate their research, Nolan and UC Berkeley Ph.D. Sara Stoudt teamed up to teach a class in writing about statistics. This month, an article they wrote on the topic was published in Significance, the journal of the Royal Statistical Society, and in March 2021 their book "Communicating with Data: The Art of Writing for Data Science," will be published by the Oxford University Press.
A UC Berkeley research team led by Prof. Sanjit Seshia has been awarded a four-year, $8.4M project by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to research artificial intelligence-based approaches that augment humans to perform correct-by-construction design of cyber-physical systems (CPS).
With the COVID-19 virus spiking worldwide and the need for accurate information about it more important than ever, four data science experts from UC Berkeley held an online discussion on the origins, amplification and impacts of the current infodemic of mis- and disinformation that is jeopardizing measures to control the pandemic.
Oliver O’Reilly, Computing, Data Science, and Society’s (CDSS) Associate Dean for Graduate Education and professor of Mechanical Engineering, has been selected as co-recipient of the 2021 Berkeley Faculty Service Award. Alice Agogino, the Roscoe and Elizabeth Hughes Chair in Mechanical Engineering, was also selected for the award.
Berkeley's Data Science Undergraduate Studies hosted a virtual workshop to bring together academic and corporate leaders actively innovating in the intersection of undergraduate data science and undergraduate economics education.
