Faculty and students from across campus helped shape the vision and foundations for the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society, which mirrors the cross-cutting nature of data science and redefines the research university for the digital age.

We are meeting the challenges and opportunities presented by a world increasingly informed and shaped by data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in virtually every arena, from health to business to politics, from our cities to the climate and the cosmos.

The Division’s dynamic structure connects computing, statistics, the humanities, and social and natural sciences to create a vibrant and collaborative environment that accelerates breakthrough research across scientific and technological frontiers.

Core to the Division is an understanding of how computing and data science affect equality, equity, and opportunity—and the capacity to respond to social challenges.



Learn more about the people who make up the Division, its staff, studies and the departments that form our combined effort.


Equity, Inclusion and Diversity

The Division is committed to making Data Science inviting, engaging, and respectful for people of diverse identities, backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.



Berkeley’s strength in the diverse areas of data science has been growing for decades, and that growth has accelerated along with the field in recent years.
