“56 percent of all eCommerce will be mobile in 2021 and smartphones will continue to be a lifeline for accessing telehealth, friends and family, and benefits. However, robocall technologies are being weaponized against our most vulnerable communities,” said Eric Adolphe, CEO of Forward Edge AI, Inc.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (PRWEB) December 08, 2020
Forward Edge AI, Inc. – announced release of Gabriel™ the Robocall Blocker app designed to protect consumers from scam calls and text messages. Funded through a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Grant, Gabriel was developed to eliminate mobile eCommerce scams that target senior citizens and disabled veterans.
Gabriel includes a unique Purple Alerts™ system that notifies parents and caregivers when a loved one is being targeted by scam robocall or text messages so they may intervene in near real-time.
And due to current pandemic-related economic hardships experienced by low income Americans, Forward Edge is making 100,000 downloads of the Gabriel app available for free to senior citizens and disabled veterans.
Gabriel does not collect, centrally store, or sell a user’s private data. Anonymity and privacy protection were key design goals that led us to incorporate Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), virtual points and electronic gift rewards as part of our overall solution.
About Forward Edge AI: Forward Edge AI, Inc.’s mission is to leverage Artificial Intelligence and other emerging technologies to solve complex problems of social consequence.

The company’s first product, Gabriel™ the robocall blocker, leverages Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain/DLT and Real-Time Machine Learning and clustering algorithms to classify emerging scams, misinformation, and disinformation and block them from smartphones before they can metastasize and claim more victims.
