Our Impact

Berkeley’s impact in computing, statistics, information, and data science research and education is transforming the field. The College of Computing, Data Science, and Society (CDSS) collaborates with partners across campus and beyond to develop inclusive educational pathways and innovative data-based solutions to real-world problems. We build connections between computing and data science and other fields of scientific and societal inquiry, explore cutting-edge impacts, and share results broadly with scientific and public audiences.
