Urban mobility and how to reassure users after COVID-19; future jobs and forms of employment, particularly working from home and work-life balance; the transformation of education and learning; and the importance of verifying information to combat fake news—these are the four challenges set this year in the seventh edition of Challenge-Based Innovation (CBI), a programme organised by @IdeaSquare and the innovation department at CERN to encourage multidisciplinary teams of students to work together with researchers and teachers from different entities on new solutions for the future of humanity.

Eight university teams consisting of 42 students from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC), Esade and the IED Barcelona of 19 nationalities, presented their prototypes online after months of work sharing knowledge with CERN scientists. The projects have been in development since September in partnership with Fusion Point, the co-working area shared by the three institutions on the Rambla de la Innovació, on Esade’s Sant Cugat del Vallès campus.

This year’s participants worked online with CERN teams to address some of today’s social issues using cutting-edge technologies developed by the scientific institution. The projects include proposals to reassure users of public transport following COVID-19, systems to increase the motivation of people working from home, technology to facilitate distance learning by people with autism and apps to verify posts on social media. Each challenge was developed by two teams of students from different universities who defined them according to sustainable development goals.

Marta Ruiz Costa-Jussà, a researcher from the Intelligent Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDEAI-UPC) research centre, analyses how gender bias in natural language processing —a sub-branch of artificial intelligence— affects, for example, some Google Translate translations, in which one gender prevails, and automated hiring processes that prioritise male candidates over female candidates. The researcher talks about the causes of this phenomenon and the challenges it poses to artificial intelligence.

Animated video of the awareness campaign launched by the UPC’s Terrassa School of Optics and Optometry (FOOT) and the Official Association of Optometrists of Catalonia (COOOC). The video, which is being screened in more than 200 cinemas in Catalonia, offers tips to prevent people from developing myopia, especially the young. Experts recommend limiting the use of electronic devices to prevent what is considered by the World Health Organization to be a 21st-century pandemic that affects 6 out of 10 university students.
