I’d like to share my Musicologist, a prototype I built to explore the intersection of conversational interfaces and search UIs
What does it do?
The Musicologist can answer your questions about an artist, a genre, or a theme to find in the song’s title or album.
You can then ask it to play those songs, using your installed music apps.
How does it work?
This project is built with three components:
- A front-end written in Kotlin using InstantSearch Android
- A conversational agent developed on api.ai
- A Node.js back-end hosted on Heroku

Have a look at the code, it’s pretty easy to leverage Algolia to build a conversational interface that can understand your users’ questions and provide them with relevant answers!
Feel free to share here your feedback and ideas, on this project or on other applications you might have for conversational voice search! We’ll keep exploring and writing about this topic, and we are eager to see what great search experiences you can create with this approach
