Interact and Learn from Webpages via Natural Conversation


An interesting project called "The Conversational Internet" from Extreme Blue at the IBM Hursley Lab in the UK, may be a start to amazing new internet technology developments, particularly in the area of interactivity and machine learning technology implementation directed at improving web user's experience and communication with impaired people.

This project requirement originated from The Royal London Society for Blind People, as it approached IBM, with concerns on how to aid better interactivity between the internet webpages and people with visual impairments, particularly the blind that need to access online information.

The way the new technology would operate is that software is capable to intelligently communicate information from webpages to a user by attempting a natural language conversation, thus dispensing features such as set commands.
