So the folks over at this travel website want you to use their artificial intelligence tech in for your travel planning, instead of starting with Google or something like that. They already use AI for some customer service stuff, but now they want to step it up and get you to use AI to find your next vacation spot. Picture this: the AI would learn all about your travel history and preferences and then recommend a bunch of cool destinations. The way they see it, they want to be your one-stop shop for travel planning, cutting out the need for all those extra steps. And hey, they might be onto something, because they’ve got tons of information stored up from over the years, and they’re ready to put it to good use.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: why not just go straight to Google, punch in what you’re looking for, and get going from there? But the people at this travel site think there’s something to be said for keeping everything in one place. They’re picturing a future where you can just say what you want out loud, and the AI can handle the rest. It’s a cool concept, but it’s not quite there yet, you know? The AI can’t book everything for you just yet, but they’re working on it.
So, why are they trying to do this? Well, it’s simple. If they can convince you to skip Google and start your trip planning on their site, they get all the business. And sure, it’s not quite there yet, but they’re already using AI for a lot of other cool things, like helping you find flight prices and managing your bookings, or even getting matched up with the perfect rental. Plus, they’re not the only ones jumping on the AI bandwagon — Airbnb recently bought an AI-powered trip-planning startup, so it looks like this thing is really taking off.
