Americans received over 38.2 Billion Robocalls in 2020 and 40 percent were scams, many targeting senior citizens and veterans. The Forward Edge-AI, Inc. robocall challenge prize helps stop scam calls and text messages.

The Gabriel app 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, virtual points and electronic gift rewards as part of our overall solution.

Forward Edge AI, Inc. – announced release of its Gabriel® Swarm Game and a quarterly $2,000 challenge to identify emerging scam calls and text messages that target vulnerable communities.

The Gabriel Swarm Game uses crowd-solving techniques to help train the software to better detect future scams. Similar to the WAZE® traffic navigation App, the resulting network effect enables zero-day detection of emerging dangers. The $2,000 challenge is modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) 2009 Network Challenge - another prize competition that explored the roles the Internet and social networking play in wide-area collaborations, and solving broad-scope, time-critical problems.

In the Forward Edge-AI sponsored robocall challenge, users can form teams with multiple teammates to compete each quarter for a $2,000 prize. The first team to earn 5,000 points on April 17th, 2021 will win the $2,000 prize. Only one team will be declared a winner each quarter. The deadline to register a team for the April tournament is February 28, 2021, 8 PM EST.

Gabriel blocks nuisance robocalls, identifies scam text message scams and vishing attacks, and automatically files complaints with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on behalf of users. Gabriel’s Purple Alert feature works like an Amber Alert to notify users when a scam is targeting someone under their care.
