- Building Conversational UI for Television
What’s Next After Siri, Alexa and Ok Google? So far most bot’s and voice UI have not truly offered a conversation UI, but been mostly focused on command-and-control e.g. “Tune to NBC” or “ Show free action movies”. With the latest developments in natural language processing and machine learning we can now start building truly conversational UI, where the user can get help with their needs and problems through a conversation with a bot. The big question is how do we develop these conversational UI’s so user feel they are truly personalized, smart and helpful enough to continue the conversation with these bots and get real value? Product innovator, Christian O. Petersen, who’s team at Comcast Silicon Valley Innovation Center is working on helping users decided what to watch tonight. Will take us through some of challenges and learnings of making bots that behave like a human, but think like a computer.
