Designing conversations

A 60 minute Keynote by:

Giles Colborne


About this Keynote

Is it true that the next generation of user interfaces are conversational interfaces?

This keynote looks beyond the hype to examine why conversational interfaces offer new opportunities for swifter, more satisfying interaction. It also shines a light on some of the pitfalls into which conversational interfaces can easily fall. It unpacks the psychology of human conversation and shows how you can turn this into design principles for more satisfying user experiences – whether you’re building a conversational user interface or a standard touch UI.
