Spring 2019 Enrollment Information

UNDERGRADUATE LEVEL COURSES

Stat 2
There are no seats reserved in Stat 2. This course will be webcasted.

Stat/Compsci/Info C8 (“Data 8”)
This course has reserved seating. Click here and look under “Reserved Seats” to find out how many seats are reserved and when they expire: https://classes.berkeley.edu/content/2019-spring-stat-c8-001-lec-001

Update 12/04/18: Additional labs were opened. These labs currently have seats available to enroll: Lab 133, 141, 142, 144 and 147. These labs have space on the waitlist: Lab 106 - 125, 128 - 132, 134 - 140, 143, 145, 146, 148 and 149. 

Stat 20
A very limited number of seats have been reserved for new Spring 2019 transfer students. Click here and look under “Reserved Seats” to find out how many seats are reserved and when they expire: https://classes.berkeley.edu/content/2019-spring-stat-20-001-lec-001

All other seats are available on a first come, first serve basis. Students need to be enrolled in both the lecture and lab section. There must be space in the lab section or students will be put on the waiting list.

Stat W21
This is an online course which will have an in-person midterm (TBD) and final exam (Final Exam Group 14, Thurs 5/16/19 11:30am-2:30pm) which is at the same time as Elementary Foreign Languages).

There will be an EARLY ADD DEADLINE (TBD, possibly Fri, 1/25/19) in order to make sure students do not get far behind, as homeworks are due the the first week of classes and students cannot make up the work.

Stat 88 Lecture 01
There are no seats reserved. Enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis. Stat/CS/Info C8 is a co-requisite meaning students wishing to take Stat 88 must have already completed or be concurrently enrolled in Stat/CS/Info C8.

If the class and waitlist are full, students can keep checking to see if space opens on the waitlist. The best time to check would be after the waitlist processes--4 times a day (6:40am/pm and 12:40am/pm). Students who need to take it to satisfy a prerequisite for Economics or Business Administration should enroll in Stat 20 or Stat W21 as a back-up. There are no plans to increase the enrollment of Stat 88 in Spring 2019 and space in Stat 88 will continue to be limited in the future.

Stat 140 (“Prob 140”)
Prerequisites in the Berkeley Academic Guide: Stat/CompSci/Info C8 and one year of calculus at the level of Math 1A-1B or higher. Corequisite: Math 54, El Eng 16A, Stat 89A, Math 110 or equivalent linear algebra.

What will be enforced: See “About Prob 140” http://prob140.org/about/

What to do if you believe you have met the prerequisites in other ways:
Students who have not met prerequisites as listed should add to the waiting list. Prof. Adhikari will contact students on the waitlist with a survey closer to the start of the semester.

There is an optional supplementary section, which does not require enrollment. The instructor will provide more information.

Stat 151A
Prerequisites enforced: Stat 135. Students who think they have met the prerequisite by taking an equivalent course may complete the Stat 151A Enrollment Appeal Form.

Stat 154
Prerequisites in the Berkeley Academic Guide: Math 53 or equivalent; Math 54, El Eng 16A, Stat 89A, Math 110 or equivalent linear algebra; Stat 135 or equivalent; experience with some programming language. Recommended prerequisite: Math 55 or equivalent exposure to counting arguments.

The enrollment system is checking for all of these:

  1. Math 53 or CA community college equivalent;
  2. One course from Math 54, Math 54 equivalent from a CA community college, Electrical Engineering 16A, Stat 89A, or Math 110; and
  3. Stat 135

Other than CA community college courses, the system does not know what is considered "equivalent" to any of those courses so students who have not taken these exact prerequisite courses but think they completed equivalent courses elsewhere should complete a Stat 154 Enrollment Appeal Form (must be logged into bmail/bconnected).

[NEW!] Stat 157 (Seminar on Topics in Probability & Statistics: "Introduction to Deep Learning")
The topic for this semester is Introduction to Deep Learning. This class provides a practical introduction to deep learning, including theoretical motivations and how to implement it in practice. As part of the course we will cover multilayer perceptrons, backpropagation, automatic differentiation, and stochastic gradient descent. Moreover, we introduce convolutional networks for image processing, starting from the simple LeNet to more recent architectures such as ResNet for highly accurate models. Secondly, we discuss sequence models and recurrent networks, such as LSTMs, GRU, and the attention mechanism. Throughout the course we emphasize efficient implementation, optimization and scalability, e.g. to multiple GPUs and to multiple machines. The goal of the course is to provide both a good understanding and good ability to build modern nonparametric estimators. The entire course is based on Jupyter notebooks to allow students to gain experience quickly. Supporting material can be found at http://courses.diveintodeeplearning.org/.
