Achievements

Mark Amo-Boateng (Ph.D.) has made it to the semi-finals of the $7 million Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE, a three-year global competition challenging teams to advance ocean technologies for rapid, unmanned and high-resolution ocean exploration and discovery.

Dr. Amo-Boateng’s led OD-Africa (Accra, Ghana) team building an intelligent low-cost modular AUV/ROV systems to democratize ocean discovery, using advanced artificial intelligence and algorithms to navigate and explore the ocean.

XPRIZE, the world’s leader in designing and managing incentive competitions to solve humanity’s grand challenges, today announced the 21 teams representing 13 countries advancing in the competition.

The 21 Semi-finalist team leads hail from Canada, China, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

He built the world’s first electronic turbine for clean, cheap electricity generation.

He also build the world’s fastest large-scale optimization algorithm.
