Will The Rise of Conversational UIs Be The Downfall of Designers?
Dharmesh Shah

I don’t think any design roles get eliminated when a conversational UI is being developed. Maybe the prominence of visual design gets reduced in this area of the product but conversational UI is a pattern I think will exist alongside more traditional UI patterns. Take Slack for example their onboarding is conversational but most of the other aspects of the product is handled traditionally. Unless a product is small enough that the entire range of user interactions suits a conversation then other patterns will have to be utilised as well.
