This fall, the Berkeley IInstiute for Data Sscience (BIDS) will launch a new seminar series in coordination with five other academic data science institutes, including NYU’s Center for Data Science, Rice University’s Ken Kennedy Institute, Stanford Data Science, the University of Michigan’s Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS), and the University of Washington’s eScience Institute.
All six universities involved are connected to the Academic Data Science Alliance (ADSA), which is providing welcome advocacy and global reach for the series for data science researchers, educators, and practitioners.
The series will feature internationally-recognized data science leaders whose research spans the theory and methodology of data science, and their application in arts and humanities, engineering, biomedical, natural, physical and social sciences. Presentations open to a global audience throughout the winter and spring will provide insight into how data science has already transformed a broad range of traditional research disciplines, important new research breakthroughs expected in the near term, as well as how innovative data science practices are being implemented to promote social justice and public welfare.
