Seminar | February 11 | 9-10:50 a.m. | Online Webinar
Professor John DeNero
In 2018, UC Berkeley launched a data science undergraduate major structured around its first-year Foundations of Data Science course (data8.org) and upper-division Principles and Techniques of Data Science course (ds100.org). These core courses are now some of the most popular on campus, with thousands of students enrolling each year. A host of connected courses have been developed concurrently at Berkeley, allowing us to offer a Data Science major program that has been designed largely from scratch to support cross-disciplinary, data-driven, computation-intensive inquiry as the central activity in our undergraduate educational experience. This webinar will include a description of some of our courses and course materials, as well as a detailed exploration of example Data 8 and Data 100 lab materials.
