What is Conversational UX w/ Dr.Carmen Martinez and Ironhack

April 16, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Conversational interfaces are integrated into many modern smartphones and standalone appliances for the home. As this technology has become increasingly mainstream, it has driven a growing interest in the subject of conversation design and given birth to the new discipline of Conversational UX (CUX). But what exactly is this new field all about and how is it connected with traditional UX design? What is the job of a CUX designer? What knowledge is required to design a successful conversation with a machine? How can conversations with other natural interfaces be integrated within the general framework of multimodality? And the most important question: What is conversation?
