Watson with comics
I am very interested in how cognitive systems can enrich our non-technical lives. I wanted to explore how we can enable Watson to understand something as complex and nuanced as visual stories. 

The ultimate nerd ally
Created a real-data interactive prototype that combines disparate data sources to create a companion that gives users a more profound way to experience things they love.

  Story trends and insights  I designed a comic-inspired second screen experience that serves to give users better understanding a comic that is dense and complex. Watson integrates data from video, visual imagery, background information and historical events to provide better context to the story and characters.

  Adding clarity  The power of Watson is particularly compelling when discovering insights in obscure or unknown topics and characters. I have a better understanding as a reader as to why a character behaves a certain way or how a historical moment is central to the story.

Data rich prototype

The experimental POC proved an entirely new way Watson can add value and clarity to another form of unstructured data and defined
a way an experience structured for numerous multimedia companies and institutions.

Established a way for designers to independently generate POCs

Powerful example of Watson technology applicable to consumers
