The TBS Center of Excellence in Artificial Intelligence & Business Analytics and the TBS Research Center are proud to invite you to the online seminar on Artificial Intelligence from a Tourism Perspective with Dr Ulrike Gretzel, one of the most cited authors in the field.
Designing AI Applications for the Tourism Industry
Tourism, as an application context, challenges many of the assumptions of AI-based services, from continuous use and therefore learning potential on the consumer side to data availability and exploitation ability on the business side. This talk will shed light on the many peculiarities of tourism that need to be taken into account when conceptualizing, designing, and implementing AI applications for this domain. It will discuss the implications of AI for tourism consumers, businesses as well as policy-makers, especially considering post-pandemic recovery needs.
