The Spring 2021 issue of Harvard Data Science Review (HDSR), the academic publication launched by the Harvard Data Science Initiative in 2019 and published by MIT Press, featured an in-depth look at the institutional effort being made by the University of California, and especially UC Berkeley, to build infrastructures and programs for data science research and education. Featured articles include a audio-recorded conversation (with written transcript) led by Harvard Data Science Review’s Editor-in-Chief, Xiao-Li Meng, with University of Californian President Michael Drake, and Jennifer Chayes, Associate Provost of the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society and Dean of the School of Information, at UC Berkeley, which covers topics on how data science fits into the University of California’s broader mission of education, research and public service, and more broadly how data science impacts society and higher education in general. Another article by Chayes details Berkeley’s visions and actions in building a university-wide entity for data science and computing.
