IBM calls applications for the 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge. The Call for Code Global Challenge focuses on COVID-19 this year. COVID-19 pandemic has evolved to be one of the greatest and harsh pandemics that has already taken the lives of more than 12,000 people worldwide in less than six months. The 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge is expanding its focus to tackle the effects of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. Technology solutions can help seize and reduce the impact this pandemic has on our daily lives. Now is the time to unite and act swiftly.
The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic poses not only a huge health concern to people – particularly the immunocompromised and elderly – but it also has had huge effects on uprooting societies and disrupting supply chains globally. We’re asking the world’s developers and subject matter experts to help tackle this pandemic by increasing awareness through communications, and by limiting the spread of infectious diseases through crisis communication, remote education, and community cooperation.
Call for Code asks innovators to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on one or more IBM Cloud services (for example, web, mobile, data, analytics, AI, IoT, or weather) that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues. Moreover, teams of developers, data scientists, designers, business analysts, subject matter experts and more are challenged to build solutions to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and climate change.
In the year 2020, the competition will have two tracks. Winning solutions are deployed in communities that need the most help.
