Let's have a Conversation about Conversational UI
For decades GUI has been the de facto standard of user interface to computer and mobile applications. But with developments in Wearable devices, AI, Machine Learning, Natural Language Understanding and Speech technologies, Conversational UI is changing the way users interact with the system. It makes way for a more natural and fluid way of communicating user intents to the system and receiving responses back from it. Imagine your users being able to “talk” to your application. Yes, creating J.A.R.V.I.S. of Tony Stark is quite a possibility today. The Apps integrating themselves to a Conversational UI will get the leading edge in this competitive market. I am totally invested in this technology these days and have hosted India’s first Conversational UI meetup group in Bangalore to play around with the technology and its supported devices. In this talk, I will explain what is Conversational UI, why does it matter, it’s design principles and how most ecosystems created by Google, Apple, Amazon, IBM and others are moving towards it.
