Video of the Week– Speaking with Machines: Conversation as an Interaction Model

The past few years have been filled with chatbot experiments—some brilliant, many not—but the future has yet to be experienced. As artificial intelligence capabilities advance, conversation will become the next major interaction model, not just a messenger experience.

In this talk from Web Directions Summit 2018 Joe Toscano explained why conversation will play such a large role in the future, define how it will happen, and suggested how you can integrate conversation into your product roadmap.
