“Data to knowledge to action.”

This pipeline to social impact in data science was among the interesting perspectives that Tom Kalil shared in a “Waterside Chat” at a recent California Water Data Hackathon. Sponsored by the Division of Data Sciences and Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), the hackathon was part of the California Safe Drinking Water Data Challenge, an effort to leverage data to find innovative ways to increase community access to safe drinking water.

A new tool on the block is rapidly shifting the future of how computing is taught in institutions, and UC Berkeley developers and professors are pioneering its integration into an increasing number of campus classrooms. Since first entering a single Berkeley classroom in 2015, the JupyterHub platform for UC Berkeley, called DataHub, is now being used by over 20 classes offered on campus. Thanks to this new platform, more students can find that the power to integrate computing into their education is easily at their fingertips.
