Application Deadline: XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling
XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling is the newest venture from the world’s leader in designing and implementing innovative competition models to solve the world’s grandest challenges. XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling is a $5M, 30-month competition that aims to create a more equitable society by reinventing job training methods for under-resourced communities.
Why is this competition important?
XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling prioritizes people in the future of the work. America’s most marginalized workers are facing record unemployment levels due to the COVID-19 fallout, and combined with the growing use of automation, artificial intelligence and robotics means novel solutions are required to uplift the labor market.
What technologies will be developed in XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling?
The day before something is a breakthrough, it is a crazy and “out of the box” idea, so pre-identifying the exact tech recipe to succeed in XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling is difficult, and potentially limiting to idea designers.
To advance in the competition, teams will need to center their efforts on three disciplines — training, recruiting, and retaining. The winning team will use technology to augment and improve human training and reskilling, productivity and work experience at an unprecedented speed.
