Typeform, a web-based platform designed to collect and share information in a conversational way, has launched an ‘interactive article’ allowing users to read about developments in technology and conversational interface, and engage with a virtual guide named “Paul”. Paul Campillo, the author of the article, discusses the origins of many technological advancements as technology imitating art, and references comic books, film and literature as key sources of inspiration. The interactive article allows participants to view “writer’s cut” commentary throughout the article, which can be turned on and off. The commentary allows readers to broaden their reading by providing additional information on a referenced topic upon request, as well as links to videos.
