IBM Announces Call for Code 2019 Global Challenge

Building on the success of the inaugural 2018 competition, IBM’s Call for Code 2019 Global Challenge is once again asking teams of developers, data scientists, designers, business analysts, subject matter experts, and more to build solutions that significantly improve preparedness for natural disasters and accelerate relief when they hit.

The Call for Code Global Initiative is calling on developers to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on cloud, data, and artificial intelligence that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues.

This multi-year global initiative rallies developers to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on cloud, data, and artificial intelligence that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues. Call for Code is supported by the United Nations Human Rights Office and the American Red Cross. It brings startup, academic, and enterprise developers together and inspires them to solve the most pressing societal issues of our time.

This year’s Challenge also introduces an emphasis on individual health and community well-being. This includes solutions that can reduce the risk of disease, improve access to data and the availability of resources, and address the mental health needs of those impacted before, during, and after disasters.

Project OWL, an IoT and software solution that keeps first responders and victims connected in a natural disaster, was the winner of 2018’s inaugural Call for Code Global Challenge.

This year’s Challenge ends on July 29, 2019.
