IBM named the winners of this year's Call for Code Global Challenge, with Spanish firefighter safety startup Prometeo receiving the top honor for an artificial intelligence solution based on IBM’s Watson question-answering computer.
Prometeo developed a smartphone-sized device that straps to a firefighter’s arm to measure temperature, smoke, and humidity, with color signals reflecting the wearer's health. Green signals normal health, but yellow or red alert the command center to immediately take action.

The Indian/Chinese/American company Sparrow was awarded second prize in the competition for its platform that addresses physical and psychological stress during natural disasters.
