What you'll learn

  • Explore the future of messaging applications


In the middle of 2015, messaging apps surpassed social networks in monthly active users for the first time. In the years since, that gap has increased, as messaging applications have grown beyond simple communication and as users now interact with smarter services and AI-powered bots.

Bhavana Srinivas explores the future of messaging applications and explains how serverless technology and cognitive systems are transforming the way we build communication apps, from chatbots to programmable networks. Join in to learn why businesses and products alike will be built on chat apps and how chat apps are changing software architectures altogether.

This session is sponsored by PubNub.
