Competition Guidelines

Overview of Competition Guidelines

The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE is an incentivized competition open for approximately 3.5 years. Teams must advance through a Qualifying Round and a Final Round of judging. Up to three teams will be awarded a prize in the Final Round.

Finalist teams will compete in both a diagnostic and consumer experience evaluation during the Final Round. The Final Round evaluation will occur in the United States, although the competition is open to teams from around the world. Teams will be expected to meet baseline standards of accuracy and functionality, but the winning entries will be the ones that score the highest in the diagnostic contest. To emphasize the importance of consumer use and adoption, only the five highest scoring teams from the consumer experience evaluation will be eligible to win.

The winners will be the (up to) three solutions achieving the highest diagnostic score regarding a set of 15 distinct diseases in a group of 15-30 people in three days (see Guidelines for full details). This diagnosis must be performed in the hands of a consumer, independently of a healthcare worker or facility.
