Tanay Kothari

Tanay Kothari, student of Class XII-L, has won a Bronze Medal at the most prestigious global competitive programming competition for secondary school students in the field of Computer Science – The International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), 2015 held at Almaty, Kazakhstan. UNESCO and IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) are the patrons for this event. In all 324 children from 84 countries participated in the IOI this year.

Tanay was among the 4 children who were selected to represent India after a 6- month long screening process conducted by the Indian Association for Research in Computer Science (IARCS) at the Regional and National levels that culminated in a two week Training Camp at Bangalore in May 2015. He also won the Silver Medal at the Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad (APIO 2015).

The IOI contest format consists of two days of computer programming and solving problems of an algorithmic nature. To deal with problems involving very large amounts of data, it is necessary to have not only programmers, “but also creative coders, who can dream up what it is that the programmers need to tell the computer to do … the hard part isn’t the programming, but the mathematics underneath it.” – Robson Frank, Sydney Morning Herald, 17 August, 2013.
