ENAiBLE Presentations: The Future of Retail and Service

Aug. 8, 2023 | 12–1 p.m. EDT

Retail and service industry companies are under increased pressure to deliver more personalized, convenient, and value-priced products and services to consumers while ensuring positive impacts on global challenges such as sustainability, data privacy/security, and social and economic equity. How might these companies continue to deliver high-quality consumer experiences while also safeguarding people and the planet?

Each student team conducted background research, consumer interviews, idea generation and prototyping activities to develop specific future solutions within the boundaries of this broader project prompt, resulting in each team presenting different proposed future experiences. This webinar hour will include four student teams presenting their research and proposed solutions with an audience question and answer session following the four presentations. 

Join us to learn what the next generation thinks future retail and service experiences will be like and how those experiences can also help address important privacy, sustainability, and equality challenges.

One of the easiest and most effective ways for companies to get involved with research at Carnegie Mellon is by sponsoring a capstone project. The SCS Capstone Roundtable discussion will cover topics including:

  • Qualities of capstone projects that yield successful outcomes.
  • Potential hurdles that can occur (e.g., data and IP) and how to navigate them.
  • A menu of available options.

Leading off the conversation, we will hear from one of our industry partners, Honda Research Institute, regarding the value they see in their capstone sponsorship at CMU. We’ll also dive deeper into several capstone programs in SCS, hearing directly from facilitators of the following programs:

  • Master of Computational Data Science (MCDS)
  • Master of Human-Computer Interaction (MHCI)
  • Master of Science in Robotic Systems Development (MRSD)
  • Rapid Prototyping of Computer Systems

Attendance is free and registration is required.
