Datathons are a new type of live-action competition for STEM students. They are analogous to "Hackathons" for software engineers, but instead of building apps, contestants use real-world data to develop and substantiate solutions to a socially impactful problem. If you are curious to see what a Datathon looks like, we encourage you to view this brief clip from our past Dublin Datathon!
The Duke Datathon is hosted by Citadel LLC & Citadel Securities in partnership with Correlation One, Duke CS and Duke Delta Sigma Pi. The event will take place on Saturday, February 3rd from 8:00am-6:00pm at President's Ballroom I at Washington Duke Inn. Highlights include:
- $25,000 in cash prizes!
- The chance to showcase your skills tackling a meaningful, real-world problem!
- The opportunity to participate at The Data Open and win $100,000 in cash prizes!
- Possible interviews with Citadel & Citadel Securities!
