The X PRIZE Foundation and Qualcomm Foundation have launched the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder* X PRIZE, a global competition to revolutionize healthcare. Teams will leverage technology innovation in areas such as artificial intelligence and wireless sensing – much like the medical Tricorder of Star Trek® fame – to make medical diagnoses independent of a physician or healthcare provider. The goal of the competition is to drive development of devices that will give consumers access to their state of health in the palm of their hand. $10 million in prizes will be awarded to the top three finishing teams that develop a mobile platform that most accurately diagnoses a set of 15 diseases across a group of consumers in three days. Teams must also deliver this information in a way that provides a compelling consumer experience while capturing real time, critical health metrics such as blood pressure, respiratory rate and temperature. The winning solutions will enable consumers to quickly and effectively assess health conditions, determine if they need professional help and answer the question, “What do I do next?” when it comes to their health. By launching this incentivized competition, the X PRIZE Foundation and Qualcomm Foundation seek to make 23rd century science fiction a 21st century medical reality. The Qualcomm Tricorder X PRIZE looks to empower consumers to take control of their own healthcare and improve the quality of life for people, everywhere.
As our Senior Director in Playa Vista, California, you will be the senior manager of the Qualcomm Tricorder X PRIZE and the Nokia Sensing X CHALLENGE, leading the competitions’ operations, implementing inspirational outreach programs, building an engaged community, and driving the competition to success. You will be positioned at the forefront of a new incentive prize allowing you to interact with the pioneers and thought leaders in the field of digital and wireless health, influence change in the market and regulatory environment as you help the X PRIZE Foundation create a new industry.
