AI is the new UI (User Interface)

Terry’s talk AI is the New UI focuses on the importance of total user experience which is really the combination of Customer and Employee experience across digital touchpoints using a combination of modalities like voice, touch, vision, motion…and how the coordination and improvement of all these drive business success today.

Utilizing examples of better UIs revolutionizing businesses from Uber, Airbnb, Travelocity and Kayak, he shows how improved UX causes business disruption and can create new category leaders. Through the use of disruptive technologies he shows how they are changing our approach to UX (like Digital Twins, Voice Response and others).

Generative AI and Conversational experiences are dramatically changing the UI and companies need to know how it will change the interaction with their customers and how they can implement it.

What is contextual UX and how do you implement it?

How will connected products with the right UX create connected offers?

How to you build ‘anticipatory UX?’

Terry brings the audience into the process of understanding why it is important, how they can implement and utilize these new technologies in their own companies and create a way to deepen the relationships with their customers.
