I found Professor Banny Banerjee’s talk about design thinking to be very insightful. I personally did not have a strong understand of what design thinking was, as I only knew it as a buzz word around campus. Now, I have a better understanding of how we can actually apply design principles to our work to better center our product around the people that are actually going to use it. As Professor Banerjee mentioned, I think it’s very useful for us to try and put ourselves in the shoes of the people who are using the technology. To do this, we really have to tap into as many local resources and connections as we can. I’m glad that we are already doing this quite a bit, and will continue to do it more as we learn more about human behavior and formulate our business plan.
