Digital Personal Assistant

Overview: As a part of my internship at Microsoft in 2014, I created Cadbury, a personal digital assistant created for knowledge workers to assist in their high engagement tasks. I scope my project to the task of travel planning and created a concept video to explain the same.

Created in the early phases of the project, this video utilizes the working title of the project which was later formally titled "Cadbury", adapted from the cartoon character, Richie Rich's trusted butler, Cadbury, who would do everything for Master Richie!

Information Architecture: Once the concept was finalized and approved by my mentor, I created an information architecture of the assistant to be able to create wireframes and mockups.
