The $10M ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a four-year global competition focused on the development of an Avatar System that will transport a human’s sense, actions, and presence to a remote location in real time, leading to a more connected world. We feel that Pittsburgh has the talent and resources necessary to win this competition, and we’re dedicated to making that happen.
Join us on January 28th to learn more about the Avatar XPRIZE, meet experts from various related fields, and find out how you can form a team to compete in the $10 million competition! Food will be provided.
A schedule and more information will be posted here soon.
