Building a Conversational Experience in Minutes with Samsung’s Bixby

For decades, the relationship between developer and computer was simple: the human told the machine what to do. Next came machine learning systems, where the machine was in charge of computing the functional logic behind developer-supplied examples, typically in a form that humans couldn't even understand. Now we are entering a new age of software development, where humans and machines work collaboratively together, each doing what they do best. The Developer describes the "what" -- objects, actions, goals -- and the machine produces the "how", writing the code that satisfied each user's request by interweaving developer-provided components. The result is a system that is easier to create and maintain, while providing an end-user experience that is more intelligent and adaptable to users' individual needs. In this talk, we will show concrete examples of this software trend using a next-generation conversational assistant named Bixby. We will supply you with a freely downloadable development environment so that you can give this a try yourself, and teach you how to build a conversational experience in minutes, to start monetizing your content and services through a new channel that will be backed by more than a billion devices in just a few years.
