David Low, Workshop: 'There's a chat for that - introducing the messaging economy'
David Low, who leads the Developer Advocacy program at Skyscanner, will be delivering a workshop titled ‘There’s a chat for that – introducing the messaging economy’ on Sunday. This session will discuss the concepts involved in natural language processing, the ‘messaging economy’ and how building mobile apps is no longer relevant for many use cases – ‘app components’ and bot services will be a lot more important in the future. As discussed in our recent blog post, conversational search is on the rise and Skyscanner is ready to lead the way!
