Got an algorithm for predicting when people are going to need to be admitted to the hospital? There's a prize for that. A cool $3M for this "Netflix-Prize" wannabe. [url] The US DoE is offering $30M for research that could replace gas and diesel with advanced biofuels. The catch is you have to do it without changing existing vehicle or fueling infrastructure. [url] If you had an idea to stop the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, there was a contest to collect ideas. It was mostly a publicity stunt, though, since BP was already accepting suggestions from anyone at the time. The IP rights of the submitted suggestions is a bit concerning, too. [url] Google eventually gave away $10M for its Project 10^100 challenge. But it wasn't easy to pick the winners. [url] There's still time to enter a video contest for explaining science to a high school audience. The winner gets a nice camera... which is kind of a weird prize for a contest that requires a camera to enter. [url]
