Been following
Been following this for several years. Wrote a paper for grad school more than 20 years ago showing why this kind of development faced opposition. Hope it succeeds this time.

I loved when this competition was announced - it's such a beautifully tangible goal to aim for, with real uses in the field. I'm very excited to see what finally comes out of it.
