About This Workshop

Without a doubt, 2016 was the year of the Chatbot and Conversational Interface (#ConvComm). Chatbots and Conversational Interfaces exploded in 2016. We were barely able to keep up with all of the updates, new chatbot startups, and the investments made by venture capitalists.

Gain an understanding of the rapidly growing and complicated landscape of chatbots and conversational interfaces including the trends and shifts we can expect to see in 2017.

Join Tech 2025 for this workshop, in our Frontier Tech Forecasts series, that will offer an overview of the chatbot and conversational interface landscape, including the highlights, the successes and the failures, over the past year and look ahead at what we can expect to see in from this red hot field in 2017.

  • Learn about the communities sprouting up dedicated to supporting chatbot and conversational interface development.
  • Understand how the industry evolved in 2016 including which companies were the most successful, how and why they stood out, and their business models.
  • See how brands and advertising agencies are successfully using chatbots to engage and retain customers (case studies).
  • Get versed on who the major players and influencers are in the industry that you need to follow in 2017 (developers, insiders, investors, etc.).
  • Bots around the world — learn where the most active bot action is happening in other countries and how they’re developing.
  • Participate in an interactive exercise to assess how the chatbot/conversational interface landscape will evolve in 2017.


If you want to gain an understanding of the chatbot and conversational interface industry  and its impact on businesses, and get a head start on strategizing how to maximize opportunities in this space for 2017, this workshop is for you.
