This is yet another episode of Interfaz live from .NET Conf CO 2017 in Medellin!

Software designed and built to be used through a conversation via text or voice? Conversational Interfaces are here to stay!  Thanks to the Bot Framework and Azure’s Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS), nowadays we can develop applications that leverage AI capabilities in order to analyze what in the world we are meaning with a specific text or voice phrase.  Cool isn’t it?  As a matter of fact, it looks like this tendency is growing and it doesn’t look that it’s going to stop any time soon.

Because of this, and thanks to her visit to the .NET Conf CO 2017, we had the presence of Rabeb Othmani, who is a Dev Advocate at Nexmo in the UK.  In this very interesting talk, Rabeb explains what Conversational Interfaces are all about, what is the toolchain required if we decide to use the Bot Framework and what are some challenges that these technologies are facing right now.
