This is “conversation as platform” – an exciting new programming approach for Virtual Personal Assistants. I predict a bidding war for Viv. It’s what Facebook should have demo’ed.

Viv’s founders believe that third-party developers and merchants will choose them because of the strength of their AI and because they are a neutral party, not a tech giant. Onstage it showed off what it claims is a breakthrough: “dynamic program generation.” With every verbal request Viv dynamically spit out code showing off how it understood and handled the request. That would hypothetically allow developers to build out a robust conversational UI for their services simply by speaking to Viv and tweaking the code she generates in return.

Be sure to watch the video of this Viv demo.
