Jane Street – Estimathon
Date: Thursday March 13 2014
Venue: Hilton Sydney Hotel
Session time: 5pm – 7pm
"What's an Estimathon" you ask?! It's a team contest where the goal is to create confidence intervals to difficult math and science questions. e.g., what's the volume of the earth's oceans (in cubic km); or, how many prime number contain strictly increasing digits. It's a very interactive game, and focuses on some ideas that are central to what we do at Jane Street: thinking about hard problems, assessing confidence levels, trying to strike a balance between quick-and-rough estimates versus more refined solutions. The game is pretty mathematically driven, but we welcome anyone interested in giving it a shot!
Spaces are limited so please RSVP soon if you're interested. The details of the event and confirmation of attendance will be sent via email closer to the event. We look forward to seeing you soon!
