Are you interested in learning more about data science from a social science perspective? 

This *webinar is presented by Claudia von Vacano, Executive Director of Berkeley’s Social Sciences Data-Lab, and Geoff Bacon a PhD student in the Language and Cognition Lab, also at UC Berkeley. Claudia and Geoff are instructors on Introduction to Data Science for Social Scientists and they will draw on their expert knowledge to discuss why data scientists and social scientists can benefit from learning from each other, and working together.

The webinar includes:

✔ A conversation around why social scientists are using computational methods

✔ What you will learn in the SAGE Campus courses that have been created in partnership with U. C Berkeley Data Lab

✔ A demonstration of Jupyter notebooks

✔ A Q&A session for beginners and experts

Geoff Bacon is a PhD student in the Language and Cognition Lab at UC Berkeley. His research focuses on two questions: why languages look the way they do and how people learn to express temporal semantics. To study these, Geoff uses probabilistic models of language, including Bayesian and neural network models, which he programs in Python.
