Tuskegee University and UC Berkeley recently announced the Berkeley-Tuskegee Data Science Initiative, a multi-year partnership to develop curriculum and collaborative research opportunities for students and faculty at both institutions. Charlotte Morris, president of Tuskegee University, recently met with Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ to discuss the new initiative. Faculty from both universities also discussed the partnership at the National Workshop on Data Science Education.
The Master of Information and Cybersecurity (MICS) program at UC Berkeley ranked #1 among online cybersecurity master’s degree programs, according to an analysis by Fortune magazine released on June 30, 2022.
The landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court will almost immediately limit access to abortions in some states, but in the days and weeks to come, the shock waves will reach deeply into American life, UC Berkeley scholars say.
The American Heart Association has been a project partner with UC Berkeley’s Data Science Discovery program for three years. Recent graduates Elizabeth Hong, Vihaan Manchanda and Maggie Wang completed internships with the association this past spring, supporting the Get With The Guidelines® programs, which maintain a database of over 10 million patient records from hospitals across the United States. The program uses this data to provide hospitals with metrics that help them improve care for their patients. The interns’ work was so impressive that all three were offered jobs at the association.
Imagine taking a few photos with your mobile phone and quickly converting them into a 3D scene that you could navigate. This may soon be possible with a new technology developed by UC Berkeley researchers that can reconstruct photorealistic 3D worlds in just minutes — without the aid of artificial intelligence.
National Workshop on Data Science Education to foster collaboration online and on campus June 27-July 1
Educators from five continents will participate in the fifth annual National Workshop on Data Science Education at UC Berkeley, which promises to bring together diverse perspectives on teaching data science. The 2022 workshop, held from June 27 to July 1, incorporates in-person and online sessions in a unique format. The first two days offer training on campus, while the following three days feature hybrid online presentations, panel discussions and technology demonstrations. It’s free for both in-person and online participants to register for the conference.
Designers, artists and scientists celebrated the creativity of data science and called for a more inclusive, transparent and ethically-focused field in a new anthology published this month.
The new Berkeley AI Research Climate Initiative aims to build partnerships and conduct groundbreaking artificial intelligence research in service of solving one of society’s most intractable problems: climate change.
As access barriers to in-person abortion care increase due to legal restrictions and COVID-19–related disruptions, a team of UC Berkeley researchers wondered if individuals were turning to the internet for information on out-of-clinic medication abortions.
The Statistics commencement on May 18 at Zellerbach Playhouse honored more than 100 students who earned bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees in 2022 and those who graduated in 2021 and returned to campus for an in-person commencement. The guest speaker was Peng Zhao, CEO of Citadel Securities, who reflected on his journey studying math and statistics, including his time as a doctoral student at UC Berkeley.
