*****AFTER YOU GET AWARDED THE CONTEST*****

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:
Different software engineering teams have developed new libraries to make it easier to write
high performance code. For the programmability test you will be given
- a description of an algorithm, with pseudocode and links to blogs/academic papers
- a dataset
Then you will be asked to implement and optimize the algorithm using one of these newly developed libraries. Each algorithm has a "correctness check" that will tell you whether your implementation is producing the expected results.
