The Next Billion Bot
The Next Billion Conference is an annual gathering of industry experts and thought leaders hosted by Quartz (the digital native news outlet of Atlantic Media Co.) to discuss the future of the internet. Conference topics range from exponential growth in connectivity in emerging markets to innovative technology in mature markets.
In October 2016, the conference was hosted in San Francisco at the iconic SF Jazz Center. Interactive design and experience as well as the applications of artificial intelligence were among the most compelling topics of the year.
To compliment this theme, I worked closely with the in-house design team to create an interactive bot (powered by Slack) to engage with conference attendees.
Specifically, I designed the UI in partnership with developer team and design director. Shown below are the working files I provided the team to program into the interface.
