Kilpailun tehtävänanto

Natural disasters are one of humanity’s greatest threats. While they may be inevitable, their impact can be reduced through technology.

In conjunction with IBM’s Call for Code Global Challenge, Arrow is launching this contest to spark technology innovation for solutions that improve individual health and community well-being through better natural disaster preparedness, accelerated response and/or a greater capacity to recover.

Examples of potential technology-driven solutions include, but are not limited to:

• Identifying and aiding people with reduced or restricted mobility who require special assistance (disabled, hospitalized, elderly, confined).

• Using machine vision to assess the impact of a disaster and accelerate response, reducing time to build back better.

• Ensuring that stocks of insulin, antibiotics and other critical medicines requiring refrigeration remain cold despite loss of power.

• Employing sensors and analytics to predict the impact of disasters and educate communities on how to prepare for impending threats.

Please note that the above examples are for inspiration only. We are looking for innovative, original ideas!

The contest deliverable is either a 2-3 page written solution proposal or a short presentation in English in PDF format outlining your idea.

We also encourage participants to apply for the Call for Code Global Challenge.

Get started by joining the 2019 Call for Code Challenge Community hosted by IBM here ([login to view URL]) and getting inspiration from IBM’s tutorials here ([login to view URL]).

***PRIZE***

1st Prize $5000 USD

***JUDGING CRITERIA***

Reports and presentations will be judged based on the following criteria:

• Explanation of the solution, who and how it helps in a natural disaster and why the solution is being proposed.
• Technologies/future use of technologies and including the technical feasibility.
• Thoughtfulness and creativity of the solution.

***ABOUT US***

    I tried submitting my entry well before the deadline, and got an error message saying that I had to verify my account in order to submit it. It says on my account page that it was verified via email 11 months ago, so there is no way for me to send another verfication email. I have now missed the deadline because of this glitch. How can I send in my entry since the contest interface wasn't working?

    Contest Holder: Please consider a tiered prize structure. Recently, another large corporation held a successful contest similar to yours using the following prize structure: one 1st prize, one 2nd prize, and forty-seven 3rd prizes. This avoids the winner-take-all risk for those who will spend significant time and effort only to see no reward. Thanks.

    Hello Contest Holder, I know you may have seen some great entries and may be thinking to close the contest earlier than the initial timeline but I implore you to please leave it open at least till Friday the 21st. Before then I will submit an entry that I am positive you're gonna love.

    I had to ask because after preparing my entry for a similar contest, I came online to find out the contest holder had closed the contest way before the initial deadline of the contest and the entry that was awarded was (at least in my opinion) of less quality than what I had prepared to submit.

    So please assure me that it will stay open at least through Friday June 21. Please.

    Thank you for your submissions. I have provided feedback to clarify that we are looking for technology innovation ideas to help in natural disasters - wither for preparedness, response when it occurs, or ways in which technology can assist in recovery. We are not looking for ideas that already exist today.
