Lad os lige få lavet en tråd hvor vi kan få samlet alt vedrørende conversational UI’s.

Conversational interfaces

All Talk and No Buttons

We’re witnessing an explosion of applications that no longer have a graphical user interface (GUI). They’ve actually been around for a while, but they’ve only recently started spreading into the mainstream. They are called bots, virtual assistants, invisible apps. They can run on Slack, WeChat, Facebook Messenger, plain SMS, or Amazon Echo. They can be entirely driven by artificial intelligence, or there can be a human behind the curtain.

Der kommer sikkert mange aandsvage situationer, naar bots bliver mere synlige i hverdagen. Men vildt spaendende er det med frameworks, der goer det let for folk at extende eksisterende services med en AI.

Part of the current obsession with bots is driven by a perceived fatigue with apps — so developers and companies are looking to bots as a new path to reach consumers.

But bots won’t kill apps anytime soon. It’s more likely they could replace parts of some apps, especially where there’s some sort of complex transaction involved or customer service. The downside of bots is that they’re often one-dimensional.

“I’ve seen a lot of hyperbole around bots as the new apps, but I don’t know if I believe that,” said Prashant Sridharan, Twitter’s global director of developer relations. “I don’t think we’re going to see this mass exodus of people stopping building apps and going to build bots. I think they’re going to build bots in addition to the app that they have or the service they provide.”

Nyt eksempel på et conversational UI her: https://app.crew.co/submit_new_project (man kan teste uden login ved at skrive lorem ipsum i felterne). Meget sjovt. En af fordelene ved at designet sit flow som en samtale er også, at du har hele din historie synlig. Du kan altid se, hvad der skete lige før og evt. foretage ændringer.

Vi har udviklet et lille projektet der nemt oversætter gamle tekst felter til en samtale. Ret cool og 100% open-soruce :slight_smile: Tjek det ud her: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/conversational-form
