The University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) received an anonymous $252-million donation, which will be used to break ground on the Data Hub, a facility for students and faculty studying computing and data science. This gift is the largest donation ever given to the school, while the datacenter’s completion will require another $300 million. The Data Hub will contain the university’s Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society. UC Berkeley’s Jennifer Chayes said the facility “will be a magnet, bringing together scholars from disciplines across campus to forge new collaborations and take on some of the most critical questions facing society today, from biomedicine, to climate change and sustainability, to making data-informed public policy on issues of societal significance.”
