“In other words, artificial intelligence won’t just help you land the lowest rate for a hotel or assist with airline reservations. It can also provide inspiration for just what kind of trip experience you want.” Terry Jones, Co-Founder of Wayblazer

WayBlazer Inc. is revolutionizing the travel industry with an artificial intelligence platform that enables travel companies to personalize their online inventory offerings for every traveler.
“Online travel planning can be time consuming and impersonal,” says Terry Jones, chairman of WayBlazer Inc. (http://www.wayblazer.ai), which provides machine-learning technologies to travel companies of all types. “Studies show that travelers on average search 140 travel sites 45 days before booking. And that’s not just bad for travelers. Hotels, vacation-packaging groups and other travel-industry companies are losing potential customers due to an unengaging digital experience that doesn’t convert.”
But add artificial intelligence – or AI – to that search, and things change, says Jones, who also founded Travelocity. Artificial intelligence is essentially a computer system that can perform tasks that normally would require a human, such as voice recognition, visual perception and decision making.
Bringing AI into travel planning means those searches won’t just pick up random key words. AI can understand the kind of experience a traveler is searching for and find the most contextually relevant results.
“In other words, artificial intelligence won’t just help you land the lowest rate for a hotel or assist with airline reservations,” Jones says. “It can also provide inspiration for just what kind of trip experience you want.”
