ChatGPT Travel: How AI will shape the travel industry
Something shifted a few weeks ago. A large-scale, general-purpose chatbot based on OpenAI's GPT3 AI engine has provided an exciting, perhaps even scary, glimpse into the future of artificial intelligence (AI). But how ChatGPT effects Travel industry?
The free and open-to-anyone ChatGPT service launched for the public has generated lots of buzz for its accuracy (and sometimes lack) of the responses you can get from the chatbot in a natural conversational mode. This weekend was when people had the time to play with it. It crossed a million users these past few days and spawned a million memes about it, mainly on Twitter.
Instead of us explaining all the implications for the travel industry, we asked the chatbot about the larger sector of generative AI and what this means for the current and future of travel. And as you will read below, the answers are accurate, common sense, and informational, even if somewhat repetitive and generic.
What are the applications of Generative AI in the travel industry?
What are the applications of Generative AI in the airline industry?
What are the applications of Generative AI in aircraft design?
What are the applications of Generative AI in the airport sector?
What are the applications of generative AI in the hotel sector?
Of course, wherever there is AI, there is always marketing that can be optimized using it. What are the implications of generative AI for marketing of the travel industry?
This one kinda blew our mind for its accuracy: What are solutions to Overtourism in destinations?
Of course, the topic du jour in the travel sector: How can the travel industry become more sustainable and better for the planet without generating a backlash?
Now let's put it to use in an itinerary generation, the most common user case of AI in travel: Give me a halal travel itinerary of New York City, for a three day trip, with food, museums, local mosques.
P.S. there is no “Central Park Mosque” in New York City. Other than that, pretty good as a base to build off.
