SXSW Quick Notes: Day 3

  • My first talk of the day was "Computers: we should talk - the conversational web". This has been one of my favourites talks so far on chatbots & CUI's. It's also one of the few I've "live-tweeted". Look up the hashtag  #TalkingWeb

  • Continuing with the bots theme, I went to another interesting pannel simply called "Inside Bots", with leaders in the space from Microsoft and Facebook.

  • Experienced the Infinity Room. A place with lights & mirrors where you feel like you're floating. Amazing.

  • Visited the trade show. It simply gets crazier every year. Incredible stuff & not enough time to take it all in. The only constant is how the Japan booth continues to be my favourite 🇯🇵

  • Finished the day of talks with a rather unusual & unique presentation called "Neurodiversity Secrets for Innovstion & Design". We learned that there are Neurotypical and Neurodiverse type of people, and that Autism wasn't necessarily an illness but more of a "different wiring of the brain". This interactive and collaborative session had us learning tips & tricks to have in mind with Neurodiverse users when we design products and services, which will not only help these kind if users but everyone else.
