MOBX 2016 topic

The art and science of conversational interfaces

As natural language technology becomes increasingly pervasive – it is at the heart of artificial intelligence and cognitive systems, chatbots, IoT and the vision of Zero UI – the design of the conversational interface is more relevant than ever. How do we make these interactions successful? Useful? Engaging? How do we learn from previous conversations in order to improve future ones? Tanya Kraljic will talk about the state of the art and science behind conversational interfaces, how they are designed and built, where the field is going, and how we can help it get there.

Workshop

Tanya Kraljic also offers a MOBX workshop on Thursday, September 8: Fundamentals of speech-enabling an application.
