The College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences at the University of California, Riverside is proud to present the 2022 Science Lecture Series entitled Big Data Science. 

This four-part series will focus on the technologies that allow us to collect and analyze data in ways we never imagined. The big data that those technologies generate have transformed not only how scientists do their research, but also how we view our world.  This series will explore the progression of new technologies in areas such as statistics, climate, environment, agriculture, biology, medicine, mathematics, and astronomy — and how it is changing our world.

This will be the fourteenth year of this popular science lecture series, which is free and open to the public. Over the years, the Science Lecture Series has covered important and timely topics such as food security, sustainability, climate change, the search for life beyond earth, gene editing, and of course, COVID-19 and it’s impact on our community.

Current undergraduate, graduate students, and the campus community will also take part in the conversation, as well as audience members from the greater City of Riverside community and beyond.  Everyone is encouraged to ask questions during this live and virtual event.

All lectures are virtual, free, and open to the public. Each lecture will be held virtually via Zoom.  Register for each presentation to receive the Zoom link.
