The Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) teamed with Correlation One and sponsors Citadel LLC and Citadel Securities to host a Datathon, or Data Open, in the Klaus Advanced Computing Building on Feb. 3.  Faculty members Polo Chau (School of Computational Science and Engineering), Guillermo Goldsztein (School of Mathematics), and Dana Randall (School of Computer Science and co-executive director of IDEaS) served as judges.  Nearly 500 students applied to participate, and the top 100 were invited to compete. At the competition, aspiring data scientists analyzed a problem statement and data sets related to the future of urban environments and "smart" cities. Students competed in teams of four for a $25,000 cash prize.
