Small Talk

For the first exercise of Rapid Experience Prototyping course, students were given the brief of creating a conceptual prototype for an AI chat bot. In recent years, the promises of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have become ever grander. With Small Talk, the team takes on more mundane angle in the world of AI possibilities.

The Small talk bot is a messenger application or plugin for existing messenger applications that uses artificial intelligence in background to sense small talk. The font size then subtly decreases over time for the conversation until meaningful conversation is resumed. This approach was chosen to be an unobtrusive but obvious reminder to spend less time on small talk.
