How voicebots lighten our cognitive load
"We recently partnered with Mindshare Futures and J. Walter Thompson Innovation Group for their Speak Easy research project to answer that very question. Our portion of the study involved observing 102 smartphone users as they carried out a selection of tasks using Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, text-based search, and questions directed to a real person. While the users performed these tasks, we monitored their neurological responses to the experience using steady state topography."

6 things I learned creating my own Messenger chatbot
"The modern messaging tools that chatbots run on offer much more ways to interact compared to what previous incarnations of chatbots had, such as those used on IRC or AIM. Much advise on building chatbots that’s out there quietly assumes that all chatbots are just text-in-text-out, which doesn’t match with the platforms they are on. I recently built a chatbot for Facebook Messenger, and these are six things I learned from using other bots in research, building the bot and watching people interact with it."

Webchat role play
"In our recent webchat alpha we looked at whether there are common webchat needs across government. We also investigated what opportunities there might be to meet those needs in a more consistent way. This involved lots of user research including usability tests, site visits, observations, contextual enquiries and phone interviews.

Researching webchat wasn’t easy. We weren’t just testing an interface, we were testing human interactions too."

A new Isotoma Whitepaper: Chatbots
"Over the last six months we’ve had a lot of interest from customers in the emerging area of chatbots, particularly ones using Facebook Messenger as a platform.

While bots have been around, in some form or other, for a very long time the Facebook Messenger platform has catapulted them into prominence. Access to one billion of the world’s consumers is a tempting prospect for many businesses.

We’ve reviewed the ecosystem that is emerging around chatbots and provide a guide to some of the factors you should consider if you are thinking about building and deploying chatbots, in our new whitepaper."
