A further advance in technology will rid humanity of the need to worry about a lot of things when travelling to other cities and countries, making it easier to enjoy the experience genuinely. Let’s see what technologies have already arrived in the hospitality and tourism industry, and what’s yet to come.
Artificial intelligence will plan out the perfect trip
There are AI services for tourists to rely on for planning the travel experience — all through a simple smartphone application.
Say, someone enjoys extreme sports, biking, vegetarian cuisine and ancient art — the neural network will remember these preferences, so the next time it is tasked to plan a trip, you can be sure that your favourite things will be on the list.
Machine translation will bring down the language barrier
Augmented reality apps combined with machine translation systems offer international tourists more convenience. Just point the camera at foreign text and see it translated before your eyes.
Virtual and augmented reality
VR technologies allow travelling wherever, whenever. Just imagine: you’re on the train, and outside the window is a beautiful ocean seabed. Sounds too good to be true, but it’s here — available with the European railroad company Eurostar. This feature is exclusive to Eurostar trains.
Train car passengers are given out VR headsets, and all they have to do is pop them on.
New technologies are transforming the way we see the world around us. We are certain: it only gets better from here!
