Call for Code Finalists Announced

leave a comment »

Last year, IBM joined forces with David Clark Cause to initiate a multi-year global initiative to rally software developers around the world to build practical, effective cloud, AI and other solutions that could help humans in disaster response situations.

The response both years has been tremendous, and the 2018 winner, “Project OWL,” resulted in an IoT and software solution that helps keep first responders and victims connected in a natural disaster.

Earlier today, the top five finalists in the Call for Code 2019 Global Challenge were announced, all of who are currently being evaluated by a distinguished panel of judges. 

Those solutions, and the teams who built them, arrived at some ingenious means by which technology can support disaster preparedness, response, and recovery efforts in this year’s challenge.

You can read about each of the finalists here, and then take the opportunity to vote for this year’s “People’s Choice Winner.”
