With launch of Facebook messanger platform, AI bot segment is trending topic these days. Companies are fighting to acquire users of different messaging platform. In this flash talk, I would like to cover the do’s and don’ts conversational UI, overview of available messaging platforms and how they are similar/different from each other.
Conversational UI concept is not new. It is pioneered by Wechat in China where it have emerged as platform for all activities, rising from a just messaging app. Countries in Silicon valley and India are trying to adapt this model with AI as added ingredient. However, it is not as easy as to follow this blindly.
In this talk, I would like to share my experience of China market and share basic design principles of Conversational UI, adapted in all messaging platforms.
This will be followed by ‘Getting started’ guide for all major platforms.
