Avatars IRL! A New $10M XPRIZE Competition


Dr Peter Diamandis


We are living in an unprecedented era in which each of us has the tools to positively impact the world in a way that was historically only within the purview of governments or big corporations. However, our ability to connect the problem-solvers of the world with the challenges that need to be tackled is still somewhat limited by the physical constraints of traveling. The $10M ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a new four-year global competition focused on accelerating the integration of multiple emerging technologies into an avatar system that will enable us to see, hear, touch, and interact with physical environments and other people, anywhere in the world. This will allow us to more rapidly and efficiently distribute skills and expertise to geographic locations where and when they are needed.
