For a long time, we've thought of interfaces strictly in a visual sense: buttons, dropdown lists, sliders, carousels (please no more carousels). But now we are staring into a future composed not just of visual interfaces, but of conversational ones as well. Microsoft alone reports that three thousand new bots are built every week on their bot framework. Every. Week. The importance of Conversational UI cannot be understated, even if some of us wish it wasn't happening.
The first thing visitors to an unknown website see is the design. If it meets the visitor’s expectations after the first couple seconds, they will stay on the website for longer. But here comes the decisive factor: the design can’t compensate poor content. If the visitor doesn’t find what he’s looking for, he’ll soon leave the website, and that is just what you want to prevent in any case. Thus, good content is necessary, as it convinces your visitors to stay and return to your website. That way, visitors turn into customers and increase the conversion rate. It all just proves once more: Content is King But what exactly is good content? What sets it apart from others and how is it created? I want to try to clear up any confusion on that with the following five factors of good content. 1. Searchability No matter how good your content is. If nobody finds it, nobody will read it.

I've been following the idea of algorithm-driven design for several years now and have collected some practical examples. The tools of the approach can help us to construct a UI, prepare assets and content, and personalize the user experience. The information, though, has always been scarce and hasn't been systematic. However, in 2016, the technological foundations of these tools became easily accessible, and the design community got interested in algorithms, neural networks and artificial intelligence (AI). Now is the time to rethink the modern role of the designer.The post Algorithm-Driven Design: How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Design appeared first on Smashing Magazine.
