5 Ways AI Can Improve Your Travelling Experience | Bella Jamal

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic right now. Many people mistake it for being for nerds or businesses, but the truth is that it is directly useful to all of us. One of the ways that many people overlook its utility is in improving our travel experience.

There are many ways that technology in general can improve your travelling experience. For example, the likes of Tuskcasino can hold users’ attention for hours on end when waiting around in an airport. Whilst some may want to play online games and win real money, others may want to watch the offline saved films on Netflix.

But, beyond simple technology being used for entertainment, we have put together a list of 5 ways that AI specifically can make our travels easier, more convenient, and overall a better experience.

AI Traffic Warnings

The word travel in and of itself infers the activity of moving around. And, when getting from one place to another, there are many things that stand in the way. Timetables, delays, and disturbances are all real-time information that our mobile phones have access too, giving us up-to-date guidance.

AI specifically, however, is a predictive technology that can help with expected traffic. So, knowing how much time it will take to get to the airport so you do not miss your flight, for example, can be something that traffic apps can predict. They use the data of how bad the traffic was at this time, and on this day, in recent history as well as the weather and other variables. This is the perfect way to get more reliable ETAs.

ChatGPT - Personalised Traffic Recommendations

ChatGPT is a new language model service provided by OpenAI. Everyone knows it is incredibly powerful, yet many do not truly understand how they can use it. Well, one way is for travel recommendations.

By using masses of information on the internet, ChatGPT can answer your personalised questions. For example, “Recommend me 5 European countries that are both safe and affordable to travel to” or “ Recommend me African travel destinations that have Safaris in close proximity to the capital city”.

One suggestion from ChatGPT to the last question, by the way, was “Nairobi, Kenya: Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya and is known for its bustling city center and proximity to some of the best safari destinations in East Africa. Just a short drive from the city center, you can find the Nairobi National Park, which is home to a variety of wildlife, including lions, leopards, and giraffes.” Not bad for a 5-second search with zero ads.

Customer Service

Another way that AI is useful is within customer service. For example, chatbots can help provide 24/7 service to customer inquiries along with immediate response times. Of course, this is quite general, but it’s worth looking out for companies that use AI customer service and make the most of it. Airlines, hotels, and travel companies all use them. Usually, with just your surname and reference number, you can find immediate information and guidance on your bookings. Just make sure that you have the appropriate local SIM card (with data) so you’re always connected to these services.

Safety, Health & Security

We can be quite vulnerable when on the road, so safety is a priority. There is a wide range of AI uses that can help with our safety and security.

One example is the Apple Watch (other wearables may implement similar features too) which can detect when you fall over or have a heart attack. Apple claims they cannot detect heat attacks, but it has successfully happened to some people. Although the technology is not yet perfectly reliable, these are the things that really help people who live or travel alone. If something happens to a solo backpacker, it’s possible that no one will come looking for them until it’s too late.

Of course, AI is also used by some platforms to assess the risk status of countries, taking into account natural disasters and political unrest, for example.

Language Translation

One of the biggest challenges of travelling to a foreign country is the language barrier. But, AI-powered translation tools are making it easier for travellers to communicate with locals. From handheld devices to smartphone apps, there are now a variety of AI-powered translation tools that can translate spoken or written language in real-time. It listens through the microphone and, as the person is talking, translates the written text similarly to subtitles. But, speech-to-speech technology is also improving. This can help travellers navigate unfamiliar environments, order food, and ask for directions more easily.

Final Word
Hopefully, you now have a better idea of how AI can be leveraged in a travel setting. Just remember, these tools are designed for the average layman, making their entire purpose to improve accessibility and convenience. The only concern here is that we become too reliant on technology and forget that, sometimes, it’s nice to get lost.
