API Stories

Winner-Team FireBot
Using FireBot to raise the alarm (based on TM Forum’s embedded trouble ticketing open API) triggers the back-end system, based on IBM’s Watson platform, to send back an SMS [using a Twilio API], which establishes the person’s location. Watson then requests more information though simple, multiple choice questions about the intensity of the fire and how quickly it is moving. FireBot posts the position of the fire on a Google map, analyzes the data to figure out the best response and alerts people in communities nearby.
2nd player-Team Open Farm
The app enables people to place orders. An SMS via TELUS alerts customers when their order is on the way. Borrowing the idea from blockchain, the team proposed using mangOH to monitor the product constantly, with updates every five seconds, to check the temperature, oxygen and humidity levels, for example
3rd player-Team ShowMiAssets
Putting cheap and easy to produce QR code labels onto items such as garbage bins, makes it simple for citizens to report bins that are full, smelly or damaged to the council so that it can take action. Also, over time it can a build a picture of trouble spots and other issues to make best use of resources. The app uses TM Forum’s trouble ticketing inventory to associate a ticket with an asset and build up a record of it, plus ESRI’s geospatial API, IBM’s BlueMix and British Columbia’s data geocode.
Team Smart Citizen Platform
The TELUS team was another with a twist in that its offering was a smart citizen platform rather than a app. The team demonstrated how platforms create opportunities for communities and companies, using TM Forum’s authentication and catalog management APIs, plus IBM’s Bluemix and an Ericsson API. Citizens can look for what they want and find a supplier. The first application was providing broadband with an identity check to sign in. The team mooted monetization by running ads from sponsors or by selling data collected by the platform or revenue share from transactions
