Faculty, students, and staff from across the UC Berkeley community are cordially invited to a combined Social Sciences Fest/Matrix Open House! Social Science Fest celebrates the accomplishments of the Social Sciences Division and its faculty. Please join us to enjoy food and drink and learn more about what has been happening in the social sciences at UC Berkeley.
This panel discussion will feature E. Glen Weyl, principal researcher at Microsoft and visiting senior research scholar in economics and law at Yale University, who together with Eric Posner co-authored the book, Radical Markets, which introduces evolutionary ideas on how to use markets to bring about fairness and prosperity for all.
Social scientists are increasingly taking advantage of machine learning methods to gain new insight into their data and expand their methodological toolbox. Presented as part of the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research, this course covers both supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods but will place special emphasis on the (often) underappreciated suite of unsupervised learning tools.
