We’ve become accustomed to having voice assistance at the touch of a button through our devices. Siri, Google Now and Cortana are getting more powerful; they are now able to search for specific answers, control your phone's functions, and offer up contextual and personal information. It’s predicted that up to 50% of our searches will be voice-operated by 2020. Conversational interfaces aren't a new concept, though; we’ve been sold the idea of computer–human relationships through film for decades.
However, there is still a real societal barrier to overcome – people just aren’t comfortable talking to their phones, especially when in public places. Society has a long way to go before we are chatting away to our phones and computers in a truly natural way.
