    The World Reacts: XPRIZE Carbon Removal

    The World Reacts: XPRIZE Carbon Removal

    In this special news round-up of the Future Positive podcast we’re talking all things XPRIZE Carbon Removal – our new $100M Prize for a technology that removes carbon from the atmosphere, halting climate change in the process. 
    First, XPRIZE’s Chief Impact Officer Zenia Tata, one of the primary designers of XPRIZE Carbon Removal, runs through one of the most common reactions to the Prize announcement – “But what about trees!” – explaining why trees are no longer enough when it comes to offsetting our emissions.  Thought-leader and climate expert Marcius Extavour brings us up to speed on the exciting potential for turning carbon into products. 
    Plus, we caught up with comedian and self-proclaimed inventor Duncan Trussell about the crazy ideas that the Prize has already sparked online. Including a contraption to turn carbon into mini hot dogs. You heard it here first!

    Radical Read - A Lot Can (Climate) Change in a Week

    In this bonus podcast we are bringing you a Radical Idea written by journalist Amelia Abraham and read by our host Sofie Tapia.  The article was written in response to President Joe Biden rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement and just a few days later Elon Musk teasing the largest prize in human history, the $100M XPRIZE CARBON REMOVAL.  These two events alone have seriously changed the future of our planet by shifting our agenda towards climate change.  
    Released to coincide with the launch of the XPRIZE Carbon Removal which is aimed at tackling the biggest threat facing humanity — fighting climate change and rebalancing Earth’s carbon cycle. Funded by Elon Musk and the Musk Foundation, this $100M competition is the largest incentive prize in history, an extraordinary milestone. For more information visit www.xprize.org

    Smartphones In Healthcare And The Current Pandemic

    Smartphones In Healthcare And The Current Pandemic

    Much of the fundamental research in computer science has been driven by the needs of those attempting to utilize computing for various applications, including healthcare. Today’s guest, Shwetak Patel describes a collection of research projects that leverage mobile phone technology in new ways to enable the screening, self-management and studying of diseases. 
     
    By using mobile phones as healthcare devices, we can enable access and scale, helping advance health and clinical science through the convergence of sensing, machine learning, and human-computer interaction. 
     
    Today’s episode was originally recorded at AI For Good, an annual global summit hosted by ITU and XPRIZE, and while some elements of the conversation are more timely to COVID’s spread in July 2020 at the time of recording, all of the technology is still relevant today.  
     
    Shwetak Naran Patel is an American computer scientist and entrepreneur best known for his work on developing novel sensing solutions and ubiquitous computing. He is the Washington Research Foundation Entrepreneurship Endowed Professor at the University of Washington in Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical Engineering, where he joined in 2008. His technology start-up company on energy sensing, Zensi, was acquired by Belkin International, Inc. in 2010. He was named a 2011 MacArthur Fellow. He was named the recipient of the 2018 ACM Prize in Computing for contributions to creative and practical sensing systems for sustainability and health.
