Chat tools have become an important part of our daily lives. Whether it’s Messenger, WhatsApp, Slack or Skype we all use some sort of chat tool to communicate with each other on a regular basis. This has paved the way for a new type of application that isn’t a desktop, web or mobile. It’s an program that lives in your chat platform and communicates with you conversationally. In this talk I will demonstrate creating a conversational user interfaced program that lives in Slack and will use Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning to work out what you are asking it to do and act accordingly. I will demonstrate how this can create a low friction interface that can automate mundane or complex tasks and make it feel like you are asking a colleague to help you out. This could change the conceptual relationship we have with programs and open new possibilities in terms of interaction and user experience.
