During the time it takes you to read this abstract, roughly 8 million text messages have been sent around the world. Most people spend the majority of their screen time in messaging platforms. Yet, we still tend to think of graphical user interfaces as a go to solution for all interaction problems. This time, we’ll take a different route. We’ll solve a real-world problem, by designing and building a virtual assistant for it. During this endeavour we’ll touch upon the subject of Bot building, intent classification and actually having a conversation with our new interface!
