Sr. Usability Engineer, Ally Bank
Recorded June 2017
Chatbots combine Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing to allow users to interact with your company much as they would with actual customer support personnel. This can be through texting or through speech (with the latter including Alexa, Siri, and more).
Chatbots represent some of the first true uses of these advanced technologies in the consumer space. In fact, they are surprisingly easy to design. That means that they will most likely soon be ubiquitous, and you may well be asked to put one together. At the same time, though they may be easy to design, they are not necessarily easy to design well.
Though chatbot design is still in its infancy, this presentation looks at several developing best practices, as well as offering a model, based around human conversation, that can guide you as you come to understand how chatbots work, what users will look for in them, and – ultimately – how to design effective and usable ones.
