Berkeley's Computing and Data Science In Action

Join us this Tuesday, April 7 for Creating Informed Responses: Berkeley's Computing and Data Science In Actiona conversation with UC Berkeley researchers leveraging computing and data science to blunt the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and support a robust recovery. 

This video event will feature Berkeley experts who are at the center of these critical efforts, which include:

  • Developing tools to enable local health departments to predict hospital ICU needs and plan interventions.

  • Finding better and faster ways to get critical supplies to healthcare workers  and citizens.

  • Predicting and addressing impacts on employment and elections.

The event, which is part of Berkeley Conversations: COVID-19, will be the first in a series of conversations offering an early look at what researchers are investigating and discovering as they mobilize computing and data science to take on the COVID-19 challenge.
