Conversational Interface: The coming face of the web

Conversational Interfaces are termed as the new age technology and something that will dominate the digital scene in the coming decade. We are already familiar with Siri assistant on iPhones, and Ok Google on Androids, but there is more to it.

Conversational Interfaces are not limited to speech recognition. There are alternative ways to engage the user in a conversation with the machine, many of them simpler and easier to integrate into our websites.
