Analysis of Competing Hypotheses (ACH)

a simple model how to think about a complex problem


Enabling value-added offerings for new market

While BASF has significant chemistry expertise, it needed to integrate electronics into its materials to capture value-added opportunities with customers in the display market.


Meeting a high-value, custom application need through low-cost, novel electronics

PARC scientists delivered the key components for a tape-like blast dosimeter with integrated memory, control electronics, and multiple sensors – which could be fabricated through printing techniques or be compatible with roll-to-roll processing (key for enabling the novel form factors and low cost), and be customized to specific application needs.



CCN protocol: Relieve telecommunications backhaul congestion

PARC has developed a communications protocol complementing existing IP infrastructure to dramatically reduce backhaul congestion on telecommunications networks.



By considering content sources, user topic interest models, and social networks, this web-based recommendation tool directs users to content of interest within their information streams to help relieve information overload.


Collaborating to complement expertise and reduce each other's risk

Power Assure wanted to develop its data center software‐as‐a‐service (SaaS) virtualization offerings to enable both greater energy savings and greater quality‐of‐service for customers.



Entering an emerging product market through IP and new technology capability transfer

Dowa had significant materials expertise and in-house R&D, but lacked the knowledge to manufacture and develop an emerging product category of LED-based products.


Harnessing communal expertise sharing to enhance services

If Xerox could leverage service technicians' tacit and socially shared experiences into a codified expert system, it would help improve services, revenues, and customer satisfaction.


Going beyond usability and incremental innovation to target new markets

The projector industry has matured. Despite the increased number of competitors and need for differentiation, innovations have focused only on incremental improvements or component technologies.


Designing a more engaging visitor experience

Based on observations of how Filoli visitors naturally engaged with audio guidebooks, PARC ethnographers realized that visitors wanted to listen to descriptive information together and share “listening spaces” with each other.


Using conversational insights to guide new products

Motorola wanted to investigate sharing practices among family and friends, so it could develop personalized communications applications that helped people maintain and enhance their social bonds.



To help increase reader engagement and differentiate content, PARC’s “Kiffets” Social Indexing Engine enables news companies to curate Long Tail web content cost-effectively.


Parallel Grammar Project (ParGram)

producing wide coverage grammars for a variety of languages



pixel-level labeling of document image content for providing large-scale groundtruth data for document image recognition programs



an easy-to-use image editing tool for manipulating meaningful image objects in scanned documents or screenshots



a social-tag based cross between a search engine and a recommendation engine for exploring topics quickly and efficiently on the web



a visualization tool for providing social transparency and dynamics for Wikipedia


Transforming employee learning and customer service practices

To better serve customers, reduce training costs, and increase revenue, a Fortune 500 company wanted to consolidate its fragmented call-center operations to provide a single face to customers.


Pioneering and deploying a breakthrough consumer product

The founders of startup Powerset, Inc., were convinced that there had to be a better way for consumers to search the web.


Creating a new media business opportunity and technology platform


While global publishing company DNP had a long history of delivering information on paper and other materials, it wanted to capitalize on the emerging trend of delivering information in digital formats.


Incubating cleantech venture to accelerate time to market


Realizing that solar electricity would be widely adopted if it were cost-competitive with fossil fuel-derived electricity, the entrepreneurs behind SolFocus had developed a promising CPV approach -- in their garage -- and were working to advance their technology.
