We all know that PowerPoint is very often a horrible experience. Presentation tools haven't changed meaningfully in 30 years. What tools could we create for those situations that are poorly served by PowerPoint, using not only today's technology, but tech we can expect soon?
Client: Turner Whitted, NVIDIA Research
Team: C. Baruah, P. Agrawal, A. Bilala, D. Das, R. Shrivastava, N. Natarajan, B. Radhakrishnan


We have an amazing array of tools that help learn about where we are now, shaping and mediating our spatial experience. But what about where we have been? Current tools ignore the rich histories attached to places, and so we do too. What sort of tool might we create to inject the rich meaning of history into our daily spatial experience?
Client: Patrick Fitzgerald, NC State Design
Team: A. Gobi, R. Jain, A. Jataria, T. Phene, R. Dates, B. Sinha


Healthcare is finally catching up with the digital revolution, and putting medical records in the cloud. This certainly helps medical providers, but how can this transformation help patients more directly, by enabling them to manage their own care?
Client: Ross Teague, Allscripts
Team: R. Bai, D. Crews, A. Rai, S. Kunkerkar, S. Nanda, V. Pandey, S. Shah


Healthcare's digital revolution is largely designed to help providers and insurers, but may be harming one of the cornerstones of good care: the doctor-patient relationship. How might the new data and technologies of this revolution be used to improve doctor-patient communication?
Client: Ross Teague, Allscripts
Team: K. Brey, V. Gupta, M. Lau, R. Muddur, P. Firake, A. Shukla


Like drivers of automobiles, today's tractor operators expect seamless integration of digital tools into their cockpit experience. How might this be achieved?
Client: David Hedley, Caterpillar UX
Team: A. Gaweda, A. Lingareddy, P. Nakhwa, V. Rallapalli, N. Shrestha, P. Srivastava, Y. Vora


Younger people expect access to their information to be ubiquitous: available where and when they need it. Young lawyers are no different. How can legal software, which predates the mobile revolution by decades, meet this expectation?
Client: Jason Broughton & Michael Etgen, Lexis Nexis
Team: P. Bhandari, T. Goel, S. Gonsalves, W. Li, S. Ramakrishnan, P. Ramesh, J. Rane
