Optimal robot action for and around people: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | October 23 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library


Anca Dragan, Professor, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley

Berkeley Institute for Data Science


Estimation, planning, control, and learning are giving us robots that can generate good behavior given a specified objective and set of constraints. What I care about is how humans enter this behavior generation picture, and study two complementary challenges: 1) how to optimize behavior when the robot is not acting in isolation, but needs to coordinate or collaborate with people; and 2) what to...   More >

Tales from the front lines of wrangling earth science data: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | November 6 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library


Deb Agarwal, Senior Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, LBNL

Berkeley Institute for Data Science


Building the data capabilities and products needed to help enable understanding of watershed dynamics, tropical forests, carbon flux, and soil carbon. are just a few of the areas where we are working. This talk will describe the role inter-disciplinary data science is playing in helping to address these challenges. Many challenges encountered are not addressed by the tools available today.

Integrating eco-evolutionary data from islands to infer biodiversity dynamics: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | November 13 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library


Rosemary Gillespie, Professor, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, UC Berkeley

Berkeley Institute for Data Science


A central challenge in understanding the origins of biodiversity is that, while we can observe and test local ecological phenomena, we must usually infer the longer-term outcomes of these ecological forces indirectly. My colleagues and I have been developing inferential models at the interface between macroecology and population-level processes, and applying them to data from geological...   More >

Creating the future of nuclear energy: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science with Rachel Slaybaugh

Lecture | November 27 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library


Rachel Slaybaugh, Assistant Professor, Nuclear Engineering, UC Berkeley

Berkeley Institute for Data Science


The nuclear energy industry is at a crossroads: existing nuclear reactors are struggling to operate economically in some tough markets, and construction of new designs in the U.S. is slow and over budget. At the same time, interest in and development of the next generation of nuclear reactors is growing at an unprecedented rate, and some other nations are building new reactors efficiently. Can...   More >

Maps of a rising water table: The hidden component of sea level rise: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | December 4 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library


Kristina Hill, Associate Professor, Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning, UC Berkeley

Berkeley Institute for Data Science


Map-based data viewers have been available for several years that reveal where coastal flooding is likely to occur as oceans warm and ice sheets melt. Recently, geologists have begun to study the influence of sea level rise on groundwater, and have concluded that in some coastal areas, as much or more land could flood as a result of rising groundwater than will flood directly from saltwater. Yet...   More >
