September 30, 2016

Image by Dion Gillard Hello Siri. Hello there weird Android fellow. We are all more and more comfortable with using voice recognition interfaces to help us search and navigate through our lives. Lately there is a lot of new buzz about natural language understanding, and how these products that deal with speech and voice recognition. Google recently acquired API.ai, a speech recognition and natural language understanding startup. These technologies are embedded in smartphones thus most of us are more or less familiar with these products. We thought a potted history of their evolution and the advanced in UI warranted further investigation. First off, how did it all begin?

Design Thinking comes to Web Summit

September 22, 2016

Image by William Murphy. Source. At RattleBerry we are really interested in the intersection of design thinking and customer experience. A lot of the people we hire into large enterprises are tackling UX, CX and UI design problems. It is our view that design thinking applied to problems is the best way to affect business transformation. With this in mind we keep an eye out for interesting events, symposiums and conferences that will help expand our knowledge in this space. The Web Summit has not heretofore been one such conference. Traditionally they have focused on internet technology, investment, start-up culture and other aspects of product development. A pleasing aspect of this year’s conference in Lisbon, Portugal is how much design thinking and UX is now featured across the different tracks and interviews. Our Managing Director Edward Conmy will be in attendance and to help him and you we have taken the time to summarise the best design thinking and user experience focused talks to attend.

3 Things to Consider Before Investing in Chatbot technology:

May 5, 2016

Chatbox technology is a hot topic amongst the user experience design community at the moment. Many designers are investigating this ever evolving type of AI which if you're unfamiliar with can be described as "a computer program designed to simulate a conversation with human users, usually delivered through a mobile App, or some kind of web interface." Why the sudden focus on this technology? The ultimate and first rule of a design-focused business is "be where the customers are." Right now the customer is all things social media, but a new shift is happening putting chatbots on our radar. The new focus of the consumer is on messaging apps and 'conversational commerce'. This shift is pushing to make the consumer experience via messaging even more personal. This is proving to be extremely effective means of reaching a target market but also raises a difficulty in implementing a workforce that can deal with that amount of communication.
