Diamandis: Tricorder X Prize Offers $10 Million to Build Star Trek Inspired Health Scanner
-

It’s hard to imagine a Star Trek away team without their tricorders waving back and forth, scanning for life forms. Was there anything those things couldn’t do, and might we primitive 21st century humans develop a similarly powerful handheld diagnostic technology? The Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize, announced in 2012, officially opened registration in early 2013 to find out.
Computers and sensors are smaller, lighter, and more powerful than ever. A creative pairing of the two, with AI onboard, and a cloud connection could change the way we do healthcare forever. Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation, told Singularity Hub the winning devices will be like “OnStar for the body.” (via Diamandis: Tricorder X Prize Offers $10 Million to Build Star Trek Inspired Health Scanner | Singularity Hub)
