Xprize and the age of techno-optimism


If there’s one organization that embodies the huge level of optimism we’re seeing about technology’s potential these days, it’s Xprize. The foundation’s challenges cover everything from bringing Star Trek-style tricorders to life, to landing a privately-funded robot on the moon. At SXSW, I met up with Paul Bunje, who heads up ocean-related challenges for Xprize. His current project is the $2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health Xprize, looking to tackle the increasing acidification of the sea. Bunje told me about the challenge’s progress, and we discussed just how far techno-optimism can take us. You can listen to the discussion below.
