The Next Frontier in Conversation Design: Unifying Bot Design Through Collaboration
How do we define true artificial intelligence? For 20 years, Yaki Dunietz has been building chatbots that have facilitated millions of conversations. But the truth is, chatbot development is in dire straits. In that time, we’ve seen little technological advancement in how developers build bots. Even industry heavy hitters like Siri and Alexa can only manage context for 1-2 lines of conversation. The solution is to stop isolating our work. By looking to other programming disciplines, we can learn that our future must be collaborative. That’s where CoCo comes in. This talk will discuss the stagnation of the chatbot industry and what we can do to bring it into the 21st century by building and sharing a marketplace for micro-conversations.
