Stacie Benton, Starbucks

Sounds super simple, eh? However, there is nothing simple about modeling the ultimate text free-for-all.  And yet more and more interface design is moving away from rigid drop downs with selectable values to the simple text box.  We’ll briefly cover the journey data takes from the user entered field to business usage and, through data modeling exercises, apply a practical approach in standard scenarios such as Address, more advanced scenarios such as Chat for Self Service or AI support, and the grandmaster of them all, the Search.  We’ll see the value data modeling can drive in harnessing data in traditional transactional applications and for the most innovative machine learning based interactive systems and analytical models.
