Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Travel Industry - Nanalyze

#artificialintelligence

If you make your living as a corporate slave, you're probably familiar with business travel. This is where companies like Amex fleece people provide a valuable service by selling corporate flights and hotels at the highest rates possible. It seems like at no point in the transaction do they ever consider trying to save companies money but instead, try to sell the most expensive tickets and accommodations they can find. Generally, that has been our experience dealing with corporate travel agencies (or any travel agent for that matter). We took a stab at artificial intelligence in travel because we believe the use of AI in the travel industry should be more than just suggesting destinations but also, cutting down the cost to travel by hopefully getting rid of the middleman middle-person entirely.
