University students may apply

IBM announced last week that its annual “Call for Code” competition, designed to rally technologists and non-technologists alike to solve humanitarian challenges, will this year include a special “university edition.” Through a partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative University, a year-round leadership development program, this year’s challenge invites university students to find solutions that can help the world respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.

The developers say it's faster than calling students individually and that some students feel more comfortable sharing their feelings with a computer than a stranger on the phone. Betsy Foresman has more.
