The session at which IBM Hackathon Cogs for Good presented its works took place today at the 16th edition of Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems Conference. These works had been selected a few months ago at the Hackathon events held in Valencia and Salamanca. This year’s edition of this international congress was an ideal opportunity to present such highly interesting works:


  1. Image Analysis for Privacy Assessment in Social Networks – Joaquin Taverner, Ramon Ruiz, Elena del Val, Carlos Diez, and Jose Alemany
  2. Rassel: Robot Assistant for the Elderly- Maite Giménez, Jaume Jordánn, Javier Palanca, and Jaime Rincón
  3. Domestic violence prevention system – Samuel Gallego Chimeno, Joaquín Delgado Fernández, Sergio Márquez Sánchez, Pablo Pueyo Ramón, Óscar Mauricio Salazar Ospina, Marcel Vicente Muñoz, Aarón González Hernández
  4. LOWG – INTELLIGENT MONITORIZATION SYSTEM WITH CUSTOM ALERTS TO AVOID THE HOME BASICS SERVICES RELATED RISKS – Carlos Peiro Gonzalez, Jose Eduardo Reinoso Andrade, Alejandro Fuster Baggetro, Araceli Teruel Domenech

The teams presented their work using IBM Cloud technology. Services and modules offered by this technology such as IBM Iot, Machine learning module, Natural Language understanding, Speech to text are just some of the examples used in these proposals, offering solutions to challenges such as the prevention of domestic violence, privacy analysis in social networks, the use of robots as assistance for elderly people or home alert systems.


Congratulations to all of you, good job.
