Crafting Conversation: Design in the Age of AI

Recording: Crafting Conversation: Design in the Age of AI, Mar 13, 2018


Daniel Padgett


As we move from a mobile-first to an AI-first world, we're seeing a fundamental shift from old paradigms that forced us to learn how to interact with machines toward new paradigms that necessitate teaching machines how to interact with us. This development highlights the need for everyone building apps and services to think very carefully about new interaction models that enable conversations with artificially intelligent assistants in multiple contexts and on multiple devices. In this session, we'll take a practical look at conversation design, the state of foundational assistive technologies, and key considerations for creating seamless experiences across surfaces.
