Talk Title

The UX of Bots

Talk Description

Bots are a whole new type of app that let users interact with digital services via their favourite chat apps such as Facebook or Skype using natural language. There are many advantages to bots for the user, but there are many challenges for bot designers and developers. In this talk we’ll examine what it means to have text as your primary UI tool and how you should approach designing the user experience around bots to make sure they are usable, simple and effective. We’ll also look at how the Microsoft Bot Framework helps you create cross-platform bots that adapt their UI to the chat channel your user is using.
