XPRIZE: Ushering in a Robotic Avatar Future

Startup Week Bangkok 2019 • Bangkok, Thailand


David Locke

Director, Prize Operations at XPRIZE

Talk summary

XPRIZE, the global leader in incentivized prize competitions, believes that the available methods by which we can physically transport from one place to another, are not scaling rapidly enough, limiting our ability to connect with others or solve many of the challenges facing our world today. It’s time for a disruption.

The $10M ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a four-year global competition focused on the development of a robotic Avatar System that will transport an operator’s senses, actions, and presence to a remote location in real-time. The wining technology will enable us to more rapidly and efficiently distribute skills and hands-on expertise to distant geographic locations where they are needed, transcending the barriers of distance and time and leading to a more connected world.
