ARMONK, N.Y., Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today,  Call for Code  founding partner IBM (NYSE:  IBM), creator,  David Clark Cause, charitable partner United Nations Human Rights, and program affiliate, the Linux Foundation announced the winner of the fifth annual Call for Code Global Challenge, which invited  innovators across the globe to help accelerate sustainability and combat climate change with open source-powered technology. The top prize this year went to GardenMate for creating an app that uses IBM Watson ®  to connect gardeners with excess produce to people in need.

IBM's commitment to Call for Code is an extension of the company's mission to better equip enterprises with the skills to develop impactful sustainability solutions. By providing access to leading hybrid cloud and AI technology, developers can leverage  open source-powered software such as Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Cloud, and IBM's AI portfolio including IBM Watson Assistant. Since launch, the challenge has garnered participation from a community of 500,000 developers and problem solvers participating across 180 nations.  

"Since the inaugural competition in 2018, IBM and Call for Code have empowered developers to take on the challenge of tackling the world's biggest problems, such as fighting pollution and food insecurity," said  Kate Woolley, general manager, IBM Ecosystem. "This year's Call for Code demonstrates the impact developers can have working with our Ecosystem partners to help affect change and create a better future through the use of technologies such as Hybrid Cloud and AI."

Winning 2022 Call for Code Global Challenge Solutions
GardenMate  will receive  $200,000 USD, as well as assistance from the Linux Foundation to open source their application and support to deploy their solution from IBM Ecosystem partners. Four additional sustainability solutions were also honored:

  • pĎ€, an AI-powered camera that monitors drainage and sewage canals, was awarded second place and $25,000.
  • Nearbuy, a shopping assistant helping point consumers to pre-loved items found locally, was awarded third place and $25,000.
  • ESSPERA, a machine learning-powered app that can help farmers choose the best seeds for the upcoming growing season, was awarded fourth place and $10,000.
  • SwachBIN, a machine learning algorithm that helps waste bins classify materials into trash or recycling, was awarded fifth place and $10,000.

Chelsea Clinton, vice chair,  The Clinton Foundation, named TransXEnergy the winner of the Call for Code University Edition, a collaboration between IBM and the  Clinton Global Initiative University. A team of student developers from Monash University Malaysia developed TransXEnergy, an auction and blockchain-based peer-to-peer energy trading platform, that pulls available energy data from sources like electric vehicles and smart homes and can connect buyers and sellers through a mobile application. As the Call for Code University winner, TransXEnergy will receive a  $15,000 prize.

"I want to congratulate GardenMate for their remarkable innovation, and all the other problem solvers around the world who contributed their time and talent to help make Call for Code such a remarkable success," said David Clark, Founder and CEO of Call for Code. "I also want to thank our Founding Partner IBM for their longstanding passion and commitment, along with our global partner United Nations Human Rights, The Linux Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative University, and all of our ecosystem partners who came together to empower developers to create sustainable solutions to help the most vulnerable among us, by creating software that helps to mitigate and adapt to the escalating effects of climate change."

The winning solutions demonstrate IBM's Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy  that marries collaboration between clients, partners, and governments with the application of technology, such as Hybrid Cloud and AI, to help build a safer and more equitable future.

IBM Ecosystem Partners and Open-Source Community Advance Call for Code Solutions
The IBM Ecosystem played a pivotal role in this year's challenge, providing subject matter experts to help teams advance their solutions, as well as encouraging employee participation. Partners such as Arrow Electronics, EY, Intuit, Persistent Systems,  Ingram Micro  and New Relic  also supported new projects with developer resources, and technical expertise.  

"The annual Call for Code event is close to my heart. The event is a great way to empower and inspire our developers to create solutions that can make a difference to the world," said Dr. Anand Deshpande, founder, chairman, and managing director, Persistent. "Call for Code is a part of our ESG strategy, and we encourage our employees to participate in thinking out-of-the-box and sharpening their problem-solving skills. By partnering with IBM, we work on solving the world's most pressing business and societal issues for clients."

Developers can now also contribute to two new open source projects governed by the Linux Foundation, including 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge winner Agrolly's OpenTempus, its annual weather forecast for temperature and rainfall; and winner of the 2021 Call for Code IBM Challenge, OpenHarvest's technology to help farmers manage crops through a machine learning-powered recommendation engine.
