About Terminal

Terminal, developed by Correlation One, is a one-of-a-kind AI game where competitors upload algorithms to compete against one another.

To date, there have been over 45,000 competitors and over 8 million matches played. You can watch this video to see Terminal in action. 

Recognized as some of the most prestigious coding competitions for university students around the world, our Terminal events provide an opportunity for employers to engage the world’s top AI talent and identify truly elite candidates for job positions. 

Since its launch in 2018, Citadel has partnered with Correlation One to host 30+ Terminal events for 5,000+ students. The 2021-2022 season featured nine Terminal competitions across the world for students from top universities including Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Cambridge, Peking, National University of Singapore, and many others.

About India Terminal 

Taking place between September 8-15, 2022, the inaugural India Terminal will be a week-long, virtual competition with a set of game rules and configurations. 

And while Indian students could participate in our Asia and Pacific Terminal competition, this India-exclusive event will highlight local talent. It will also  give a greater number of high-achieving participants the chance to showcase their skills. 

“We’ve been highly impressed with the data talent coming out of India and have been planning to bring our competition there for quite some time,” said Sham Mustafa, Correlation One Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “We believe there is a long tail of top-notch data talent in India that is untapped and undiscovered. In partnership with Citadel and Citadel Securities, we’re excited to engage with this highly selective pool of candidates.”

With participants from schools such as IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Delhi, and IIT Kanpur, India Terminal will be one of our most vigorous and challenging competitions to date. 

India Terminal  is open to all current students based in India. Interested candidates can apply now.
