Update the Watson Assistant UI code in Github to be mobile first/responsive.

Mocking up a quick chatbot is an extremely powerful method of showing clients (IBM clients or clients of ISVs) the benefits of Watson Assistant and how quickly it can be done. I have experienced this being extremely diluted because of the lack of mobile ready UI. These days it is is expected and demos on the audience's phone really do create a wow that you don't get on a laptop connected to a projector and all the rigmarole associated with setting that up.

    I note that the new Integrations feature can be used to create demo page which at first looks like it's mobile ready but unfortunately it isn't. It's so close but not quite there yet. Updating the code for this demo link seems relatively straight forward?

    It would also make sense to have a web integration (web/html chat widget) to make it easier to deploy a Watson Assistant based chatbot to a website using a script/embed code. Competitors have this. I understand that there are advantages to developing one's own frontend, but there are many cases where this is unnecessary and we want to focus on the chat engine/backend, and just need to havr an out of the box, responsive, good frontend/UI that can b put into a website.
