May 2, 2018

A 20-million-dollar prize to innovators coming up with ways to solve humanity’s grand challenges is being split 10 ways among the  Carbon XPRIZE finalists who were just announced.  Joining us with a look at the winners is Dr. Marcius Extavour, XPRIZE senior director of Energy and Resources.

Attorney Art Harrington of the law firm Godfrey & Kahn in Milwaukee is part of an upcoming autonomous car symposium which examines these issues.
