So I would love to begin with getting to know you both a bit, one by one. Tell me a little bit about yourself and a little bit about your background, who you are, what makes you, you?
Ajiya: So I’m going to start off. Do you want to know…
Incorporating what we learned from the Competitor Analysis, as well as our thinking about the most compelling Use Cases, we were asked to refine the language of our value proposition with a slightly more detailed breakdown. This chart below was given to us as a guide in helping us refine our wording and what we want our audience to focus on.
This exercise was to help us find and critique products, services, companies, and ideas that overlap with our own thesis concerns. This was to identify the strong and weak points of these competitors and hone in on the gaps where our ideas can have the most impact.
Below is a…
Note: This prototype plan for thesis is in constant iteration. Later tasks for dates to come will be added and current ones edited as needed.

The first step of building a Prototype Plan included making a prototype roadmap. This first pass is your analysis of where you have been and terrains yet to explore. This is a high level map to address the following key questions/attributes to answer about my concept so far:
To help us focus our thesis exploration moving forward, we were asked to make a matrix which included the following:
Crudely render many ideas to find a solution worthy of a more precise investigation. — Frank Gehry
Does it feel more or less promising? Why?
After the presentation to class, this take on the prototype feels more promising because:
Statement (in the works)
A communication device and app to empower MS patients and their families to understand and manage MS better together.
People living with MS
Families living with MS and/or supporters of the above
A communication device to send emotion signals
An AI-based app empowering families to take…
My problem area is:
People living with MS cannot communicate their emotions and needs effectively. Their supporters, who are most commonly their families, do not know how to help the person living with MS and their symptoms on a day-to-day basis.
My solution focuses on:
Communication emotions through colors and…
Coming back to school and doing this exercise as a group was definitely a great way of starting fresh. This idea was just to sketch new ideas for how our individual problem areas could be approached. …
