With the proliferation of voice as an interface, we are starting to really understand the power of voice to complete complex tasks that take multiple steps, to get direct access to content without having to navigate and for scenarios where alternative input is hard, impossible, or unsafe like driving. Each device we interact with has its set of opportunities - whether it is a touch screen, a TV, a car, or as part of a mixed reality experience. This talk will look at some of the principles, opportunities and challenges for designing experiences on different devices.

Natural language conversational interfaces are emerging as a powerful new way for people to interact with digital services. In order to design a natural user interface, we need to apply a human-centered design approach. In this hands on design sprint you will learn how to design and prototype a voice conversation action using new Google Design Sprint methodologies. We’ll start from the theory and principles of social interaction, and then start crafting the personality and dialog of your conversational agent.
