We're entering a promising new era of computing.

The advance of machine learning and artificial intelligence is reviving interest in conversational interfaces. This creates the potential for conversation as the new mode of interaction with technology.

The big problem is recognizing spoken input has been mostly solved, but a new challenge has arisen: how to build a user experience that's modeled after natural human conversation.

This talk outlines the basic mechanics of conversation, introduces core principles to design by, and presents you with a practical UI to start creating conversational experiences that engage, delight, and truly help your users. We'll also be building a voice enabled bot using JavaScript!
