IBM makes a call for code in Odish in cooperation with the state government, Xavier Varsity

Bhubanswar: IBM, Xavier University and the Odysha Government jointly welcomed the global challenge of Call for Code in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.
All-day hackathon is organized to gather developers and build innovative solutions that can alleviate the consequences of natural disasters. After Cyclone Fani hit the Odish state last month, IBM, together with Xavier University and Govt of Odish, will use the power of open technologies such as Cloud, AI, IoT and Blockchain to build better solutions for the future.
IBM also organizes similar hackatones on the same day via Delhi, Pune, Hyderabad and Bangalore with over 100 participants expected at each location.
The codex call is a five-year global initiative that is the largest and most ambitious effort that gathers start-ups, academics and entrepreneurs to address the most urgent social issues. In 2019, the focus is on prevention, response and recovery from natural disasters with an emphasis on the health of the individual and the welfare of the community.
The Odish State Government was very successful in minimizing loss of life and damage during the Fani cyclone. IBM hopes that solutions developed during the hackathon will further contribute to the country’s preparedness for disaster management.
This year, India has organized over 15 calls to program days for development programs in major cities, including Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Gurgaon and Chennai. During hackaton, developers will have access to IBM’s resources, codes, tools, and technology in areas such as Blockchain, AI, weather forecasts, and machine learning to build their solutions.
For teams of development teams, an enabling session will be organized, which will orientate them to adopt a creative approach to problem solving. All works on the call for Odisha will be considered for global competition.
