SCDF X IBM - Lifesavers' Innovation Challenge: Call For Code 2020

On 12th June 2020 @ 6pm, SCDF will release 4 problem statements relating to SCDF’s most pressing concerns around crisis management and climate change responsiveness. This is in support of the Singapore Together Movement where SCDF partners with corporates and the community to create solutions to complex problems we face.


We are looking for innovative solutions that can radically improve our society's readiness to respond. This year, students will be given 48 hours to solve 1 out of the 4 problem statements that resonates with them the most, utilizing AI, ML and loT capabilities from IBM cloud.


At the end of the 48 hours (14th June 2020, 6pm), your team must submit your project onto Github with a 2-minute video pitch responding to the problem statement and how it shapes a better Singapore together. More information about submission guidelines will be released with the problem statements

The top 5 teams will be chosen to present their pitch to a panel of SCDF and IBM judges
