CDAR encourages innovative thinking in data science research and its applications to investment risk and portfolio management. With support from State Street, as well as the Economics and Statistics Departments at UC Berkeley, CDAR organizes workshops, conferences, and research opportunities to create a culture of learning. These events bring together academic researchers in physical and social sciences and industry researchers from finance firms and technology companies both large and small.

Research Highlights

Is it Mathematics or is it Software? (link to official pdf) In Notices of the American Mathematical Society, CDAR Co-Director Lisa Goldberg explores the concepts and issues surrounding mathematical software development. From the abstract: “Since we are in an age where significant progress has been achieved on both practical and intellectual levels by such thinking, the development of mathematical software is genuinely part of mathematics. That is, the conceptual breakthroughs in software development should find a home in the academic mathematical community.”
