Abstract:
Led by Professor David Wagner, recipient of the Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award and Foundations of Data Science (Data 8) co-instructor, this workshop is intended for faculty who are actively engaged in developing and offering a data science curriculum.

Statistics at UC Berkeley: We are a community engaged in research and education in probability and statistics. In addition to developing fundamental theory and methodology, we are actively involved in statistical problems that arise in such diverse fields as molecular biology, geophysics, astronomy, AIDS research, neurophysiology, sociology, political science, education, demography, and the U.S. Census. We have forged strong interdisciplinary links with other departments and areas of study, particularly biostatistics, mathematics, computer science, and biology, and actively seek to recruit graduate students and faculty who can help to build and maintain such links. We also offer a statistical consulting service each semester.
