TIME included three UC Berkeley College of Computing, Data Science, and Society community members in its inaugural list of the 100 most influential people in AI released today.

Those individuals include Inioluwa Deborah Raji, a Ph.D. student in Berkeley’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS); Stuart Russell, a professor in EECS; and Ziad Obermeyer, an associate professor in Berkeley’s School of Public Health and faculty member for the Berkeley-UCSF Computational Precision Health program. 

“We wanted to highlight the industry leaders at the forefront of the AI boom, individuals outside these companies who are grappling with profound ethical questions around the uses of AI, and the innovators around the world who are trying to use AI to address social challenges,” TIME Executive Editor Naina Bajekal said in the publication’s article announcing the list.

The College of Computing, Data Science, and Society aims to use computing and data science to help solve society’s most pressing challenges from climate change to health inequities and to educate the next generation of ethical, data-driven leaders. The college was announced in May and is the first new college or school at Berkeley in more than 50 years.
