Having Natural Conversations with Our Things

When and how we interact with technology is steering us toward conversation with our devices. Being able to talk to systems like our cars or our appliances brings all kinds of new, maybe even unthinkable, possibilities. Researchers and designers are imagining Conversational User Interfaces (CUIs) as a new paradigm in technology that could be as transformative as Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) were at one time. GUIs helped propel personal computers into widespread use; CUIs could be the enabler of natural conversations with our "things," even those we haven't conceived of yet. Join us for a discussion about how we¹re thinking about and designing "invisible" conversations with technology, and how the future is changing because of it.
