How Might We Design Human Centered Chatbots?

Sunday, March 26 2:15 pm – 3:00 pm

Back to All IA Summit 2017 Sessions

Session Summary

With more than 30,000 chatbots built on the Facebook Messenger platform alone, industry experts are claiming bots as the next big frontier in tech. Most of these chatbots have not been built with Human Centered Design in mind. Human Centered Design starts with the needs of the user and ends with empowering the life of that user.

Each user has a unique personality, with rich emotions and context. Designers can apply Human Centered Design to take bots beyond the transactional realm to forming a deeper connection with each user. In this hands-on talk, Jayneil will showcase the power of using the ‘How Might We’ method for framing a design challenge to build a chatbot. Attendees will then learn to apply Human Centered Design principles for designing chatbots with the help of live demos and examples.
