Creating Informed Responses: Berkeley’s Computing and Data Science In Action - Livestream

Nobel Laureate Saul Perlmutter, Director of the Berkeley Institute for Data Science, and Michael Lu, Dean of the Berkeley School of Public Health, will host and moderate a roundtable discussion with Berkeley researchers who are mobilizing computing and data science for COVID-19 response and recovery, from helping local public health officials track the pandemic to predicting and addressing its impacts on employment and elections.

This video event will feature Berkeley experts who are at the center of these critical efforts, which include 1) Developing tools to enable local health departments to predict hospital ICU needs and plan interventions, 2) Finding better and faster ways to get critical supplies to healthcare workers and citizens, and 3) Predicting and addressing impacts on employment and elections.
