This essay outlines a prediction for the near-term (2012 to 2019) emergence of a Conversational Interface (CI) on the global web, via computer hardware and software platforms called Spoken Dialog Systems (SDS). The CI has also been called the Conversational User Interface (CUI), Linguistic User Interface (LUI), Universal Linguistic Interface (ULI), Voice User Interface (VUI), Natural User Interface (NUI) and other terms. For a few recent technical books on the topic, see Spoken Dialog Technology: Toward the Conversational User Interface, Michael McTear, 2004, and Practical Spoken Dialog Systems, Deborah Dahl (Ed), 2005.
