On Oct. 20, Yale held its first Data Science Workshop, a daylong event focused on computational social science. Computer science professor Dragomir Radev and other organizers said the workshop reflected Yale’s increased commitment to data science, and may become part of an ongoing series of workshops. Earlier this year, Yale renamed its statistics department as the Department of Statistics and Data Science and launched a new undergraduate major in statistics and data science.
