[The] FTC last October offered a $50,000 prize to whoever could come up with the best technology for stopping robocalls. Today, the FTC announced three winners who devised robocall blocking systems that might help end the scourge forever. Two of the winning proposals detect illegal robocallers and disconnect the call before it can get through to consumers. The third would build a database of bad numbers by having consumers report robocalls.
