CS 106S is a survey course on the applications of fundamental computer science concepts from CS 106B/X to problems in the social good space (such as health, government, education, and environment). Each week consists of in-class activities designed by student groups, local tech companies, and nonprofits. Some of the topics we will cover include mental health chatbots, tumor classification with basic machine learning, sentiment analysis of tweets on refugees, and matching algorithms in the context of COVID-19. Prerequisite/corequisite: CS 106B or CS 106X.
