Ocean-related technology is riding the innovation wave. See what we did there?
Our ocean remains the greatest mystery on planet Earth. The ocean takes up 70% of our blue planet, yet we’ve only explored 5% of it. The ocean suffers from many urgent grand challenges – we don’t know enough about the ocean, too much pollution is going in, and too many fish and other animals are coming out.Thankfully, ocean-related technology is riding the innovation wave, and we’re seeing some really amazing breakthroughs in ocean health and exp...

"The IBM Watson AI XPRIZE will stir innovation and empower a global group of developers, entrepreneurs, and organizations to push the boundaries of human-machine collaboration, forever changing for the better the way in which we live and work."
​Registration has just opened up for an all new XPrize, focusing on getting humans collaborating better with AI tech to solve major global issues. Unlike previous competitions, the IBM Watson AI XPrize doesn’t feature a set of pre-determined goals, but challenges teams to come up with their own.

In some parts of India, 9 out of 10 women report some form of sexual assault in their lifetimes. It's time for a change.
Device to be developed in India would send distress signal, location and live-stream images.

A race to beat climate change.

Registration closes July 15 for the $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE!:
In partnership with NRG Meet the tech start-ups that are getting clever with carbon Reality check, folks: according to the scientists even if we, as a world, hit every single emissions-reduction target ever made, it still might not be enough to beat climate change. However much solar or wind energy we produce, research says we’re probably not going …

Our deepest ocean waters are full of surprises---like these vents being three to six times more common than previously thought!
Ecosystem-supporting hydrothermal vents are much more abundant along the ocean floor than previously thought.

The Moon Village is coming. (If you're excited about the Moon, check out our $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE!)
According to the ESA we are only 20 years away from it becoming a reality.

Making the Impossible Possible.
Introduction
Founded in 1995, XPRIZE is the leading nonprofit organization solving the world’s Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself.  The organization motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital for the benefit of humanity. 

XPRIZE conducts competitions in five Prize Groups: 
Learning; Global Development; Energy & Environment; Life Sciences; and Exploration (Ocean and Deep Space).  

Prizes won include the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE for private, suborbital space flight; the $10 million Progressive Insurance Automotive XPRIZE for creating safe, affordable, production-capable vehicles that exceed 100 MPG energy equivalent (MPGe); $1.4 million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE for solutions to speed the pace of cleaning up seawater surface oil resulting from spillage; and the $2 million Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander XCHALLENGE for advanced rocket development. 

Active prizes include the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, the the $2.25 million Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE and the $2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE.  To learn more about the XPRIZE, please visit http://www.xprize.org
