Imagine transporting a human’s sense, actions, and presence to a remote location in real time. That is the goal of the $10 million ANA Avatar XPRIZE, a four-year global competition focused on development of a system that will deliver mind-blowing abilities ranging from remote participation in meetings to disaster relief to caregiving from afar.
The Marketing Programs Committee is honored to host US-based Japanese entrepreneur and XPRIZE Visioneer, Jun Suto, who will share his insight and experience in social innovation, open-source collaboration, and partnership development.
This is the story of a highly successful and ongoing activity, both from the viewpoint of sponsors and how it benefits society. Suto will show us how it all happened and where it is going! Come listen, learn, and be inspired!
