uHelp app launched by WeNet partner

L’Institut d’Investigació en Intelligència Artificial (IIIA-CSIC), a WeNet partner, alongside the Department of Philosopy of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the Fundació Autònoma Solidària (FAS) launched a new app, uHelp.

uHelp is a social network application to facilitate people to ask for and receive help. It allows people in everyday life to source things such as a babysitter or someone to lend you chairs for a party. The added value of uHelp is that for each request, it is the user who determines the level of trust and whether that person has to be one of your uHelp contacts, a friend of a friend, or those at any connection level. This way, only those that match the requirements will receive the call for help.
