Over 1,500 students have taken the highly popular Data-X course at UC Berkeley to develop hands-on, “applied innovation” skills in Data Science, AI and Machine Learning.
Today's companies require employees with the latest data science skills to gain insight on their customers, operations, and growth through their data.
Join us this Fall 2020 LIVE, virtually, with our instructor-led, professional-only track, guided by Berkeley faculty and industry experts.
Unique among data science courses in that Data-X includes a mentored project, allowing participants to apply course learnings to real data sets and create novel data insights and innovation solutions.
Ideal for a range of professionals - from those with limited programming backgrounds to those seeking a “refresh” of their data science skills or deeper, “hands-on” exposure to the latest industry tools and libraries in use today and “applied innovation” practice.
Take your career to the next level and move your firm's digital transformation forward.
- The program runs from September 3 to December 17, 2020
- Meets live, virtually 3 hours weekly, Thursdays, 8:00 - 11:00am OR 4:00 - 7:00pm Pacific Time
- Combines online discussion, self-guided learning, and a team project, where the skills learned are applied to venture applications.
- Draws upon UC Berkeley's deep background in innovation, published in Innovation Engineering, a course reading

What will you build?
The COVID-19 Predictor spreads awareness of the severity of coronavirus by allowing users to estimate the total infected in their region in the near future. This is accomplished by allowing the user to choose their country and how far into the future they want to see, then fitting the growth rate of their region to an exponential function, and delivering an estimate of the number of infected in that region.
The automotive industry is undergoing an electric revolution, as the world embraces the next generation of sustainable transportation. However, the availability of reliable electrical infrastructure is a major constraint for mainstream EV adoption. The UC Berkeley student team performed exploratory data analysis to figure out what variables were indicative of EV adoption rates year over year and used this data to train several statistical forecasting models, including linear regression and ARIMA.
Students at the University California, Berkeley have developed a way for new weight lifters to have 24/7 access to a trainer right at their fingertips. The team has developed a web application that is simple to use and gives users real-time feedback as to whether or not they are lifting weights properly. The application specifically focuses on the deadlift, which can be one of the more dangerous lifts for a new lifter to attempt.
