Overview

Each year, Microsoft Research sponsors a semester-long class at leading design schools. Students are asked to form interdisciplinary teams of two to four students to design a user experience prototype that solves a real-world problem. From these groups, a representative team from each school presents its work to Microsoft.

This year’s design challenge is ‘Achieving Symbiosis and the Conversational User Interface (CUI).’

Design Expo began as partnership from Microsoft and Apple to integrate technology into the curriculum of design schools worldwide. The goal is to build long term relationship with the design schools, and build community across schools.
