The Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) will help researchers harness the full potential of the data-rich world that today characterizes all fields of science and discovery. BIDS will build on existing campus strengths to facilitate and enhance the development and application of cutting-edge data science techniques in the biological, social, physical and engineering sciences.
The new Institute will launch its initial programs on December 12, 2013, and will move into its new location in Doe Library at the center of campus in spring 2014.
