NASA Challenge: Bio-Inspired Advanced Exercise Concepts

There are many exercise devices that exist today. Many use servomotors pneumatics, flywheels and elastic bands which are all available today off the shelf. The Seeker would like to find new concepts that are inspired by biology. This type of biomimicry has shown to be efficient and durable in many cases. Solvers are asked to come up with bio-inspired exercise mechanism that will be the basis for resistive and aerobic exercises for astronauts.

  • Open Innovation For All: The General Fusion Experience Recorded: Feb 2 2017 57 mins
    Brendan Cassidy, Siobhan Gibney Gomis
    Fortune 500s with robust innovation programs have long benefited from crowdsourcing Challenges, but what do smaller companies stand to gain? To find out, we’ll be speaking to Brendan Cassidy, Open Innovation Manager at General Fusion, a fusion energy technology company, which has just completed its first pilot program of three Challenges with InnoCentive. We’ll be discussing their experiences with running these Challenges, all of different types, including their original motivations, how they measured ROI and success, and the ways in which they are now further leveraging the Challenges.
  • Data, Apps and Open Innovation Recorded: Mar 30 2016 59 mins
    Andrew Lipstein, Thomson Reuters; Jon Fredrickson, InnoCentive; Kelly Higgins, InnoCentive
    Ever wondered how you could tap in to the power of the crowd to get more out of your data? In this webinar, we’ll be in discussion with Andrew Lipstein from Thomson Reuters on how and why open innovation is being used for data analytics and app development. We’ll be diving into some of the past open innovation initiatives that Thomson Reuters have run with InnoCentive, looking at the value they generated and some of the feedback from the problem solvers involved. Kelly Higgins, one of InnoCentive’s innovation experts, will be on-hand to provide some best practices for running these open innovation initiatives and talk about how InnoCentive has worked to optimize these initiatives and maximize the chances of success.

  • Join the Mobile Voting Revolution | Featuring Votem CEO & Founder Pete Martin Recorded: Sep 1 2015 56 mins
    Pete Martin, CEO & Founder, Votem
    Votem is a revolutionary mobile voting platform designed to securely cast votes in elections across the globe. We believe we can dramatically increase the voter turnout in the United States and the World by making voting easier, safer, and more accessible than any other current means. In this Challenge, we are asking Solvers for help in overcoming the significant obstacles that stand in the way of bringing safe, secure, and easy voting to people worldwide. These obstacles fall into three main categories that may be addressed individually or together: security, identification/authentication, and accuracy and verifiability.
  • Integrating Crowdsourcing for Drug Pipeline Development Recorded: Apr 21 2015 58 mins

    Limited Resources, leveraging current funds to maximize ROI, focusing many minds on one problem – are all issues that organizations face every day while working towards cures and care improvements. This webinar features Executive Director for the National PKU Alliance (NPKUA) Christine Brown – who discusses how they are using Challenge Driven InnovationTM (CDI) to significantly improve patient blood monitoring of PKU, a rare disorder that causes an amino acid called phenylalanine to build up in your body.
  • Innovation Metrics Featuring Jack Anderson Recorded: Mar 13 2015 62 mins
    Jack Anderson
    All enterprises seek innovation. It is known as a success factor for businesses and organizations. The ability to creatively harness and lead in our rapidly changing world identifies winners. The inability to deliver better products and services faster, better and cheaper than competition identifies losers. The best and the brightest employees are attracted to organizations that have Innovative work environments. Customers freeze out products and services that do not innovatively compete.

    Steven Radar, NASA, Steve Domeck, InnoCentive
    Implementing a deliberate strategy developed to drive organizational change, NASA began pioneering the use of crowdsourcing and collaborative innovation in 2005, to more actively engage the public and advance solutions to difficult challenges. After an incredibly successful set of pilot challenges, NASA was requested by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to create a Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation (COECI) to assist other Federal Agencies in applying the practice of crowdsourcing. On the heels of its two-year anniversary, the NASA Center of Excellence is pleased to share their innovation crowdsourcing experiences with you. Join usfor a live webinar – NASA Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation – Crowdsourcing Journey hosted by the NASA COECI Team as they discuss and review:

    • A brief history of the pilots
    • The CoECI mission, organization, and use of NASA@Work internally
    • Highlights of recent successful challenges
