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

In my opinion, the Conversational UI is sort of like the emergence of Pinterest design, and the Tinder card design after it.

It flushes away a lot of chrome, and creates a layer of simplicity.

BUT, without a recommended action layer or navigation layer (ala MENU), it might leave a lot of the thinking to the user to initiate. With the addition of NLP understanding need to be of high quality, the Conversational UI would be nice and easy to mimic but hard to execute.
