For Thesis Defense Examination. Focus on:

WHAT (aims, goals, vision of your research, the key novelty/novelties)

WHY (related works, what is the advantage of your work, benefit to industry or society)

HOW (methodology used, designs, prototypes)

RESULTS (data, tests, numerical and non-numerical results, user studies, evaluation)
