Botversations - Messaging is the Medium

How many times a day does your phone or watch buzz? You glance at it and see a message, an alert, likely machine-generated. Often, one or two buttons appear offering actions. You tap one, and you're done. Or say you want something. You don't open an app or browser, you go to Slack or your message app, type a question, and from somewhere, a bot answers.

Join experts from Vox Media and XOXCO to cover the latest in bot interaction design. We'll explore historical research and modern trends, talk about the industries and geographies taking the lead (like chatops, news, and China), and give you a toolkit for how you can create and run your own bots. See you there!
