Tourism comes late to the race of artificial intelligence. Disruptions in the sector will come hand in hand with artificial intelligence + data. The tourism sector needs to rely on artificial intelligence to develop its competitiveness and growth potential.
The most tourist countries such as those in southern Europe, Spain and Germany among them are not taking it seriously and are not positioning themselves. Whereas China is putting some serious efforts in these cases. The application of artificial intelligence would increase the competitiveness and quality of tourism services.
Tourism is among the most backward sectors in terms of forecasting the future demand for artificial intelligence, according to Andres Pedreno, general director of the Observatory of Artificial Intelligence. As pointed out in his speech at the ITH Innovation Summit, "although it may seem a comfortable situation, the truth is that the most tourist countries such as southern Europe are not taking it seriously and are not positioning. But this sector, like so many others, needs to rely on artificial intelligence to develop its competitiveness and growth potential, and they are not working on it."
Andres Pedreno has warned that countries and companies "will stop developing a third of their growth potential if they do not apply artificial intelligence.” And among the first, China has already advanced the United States in this "international race that is taking place to position itself in the application of this artificial intelligence tourism technology." It is a race in which tourism; Europe and United States are falling behind.
And that its application, as explained by Pedreno, "would increase the competitiveness and quality of service in tourism, and more specifically in hotels. Most of the disruptions that will affect the sector will come hand in hand with artificial intelligence applied to data, so it is necessary to prepare for the scenario ".
Especially considering, as he added, "the naturalness of use with which millenials adopt new technologies, so it is only a matter of time. Even older people adopt them faster than expected provided they make things easier for them. "
Artificial intelligence applications + data:
Pedreno has listed the capacities that the application of artificial intelligence can generate in the tourism sector to the analysis of data:
- Customization of offer, prices, etc., to the client to be more efficient and offer a higher quality in the services; along with greater standardization, also to reduce costs
- Early identification of trends.
He has also indicated the areas related to the tourism sector that will be affected by artificial intelligence:
- Marketing and advertising, more personalized and effective
- Customer service
- Personalization of the service
- Process reengineering to achieve greater cost efficiency.
Beijing will debut its new mega-airport of € 15,500 million:
The airport will be officially inaugurated on September 30, on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China. Its construction took five years, designed by the now-deceased British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid and Paris Airports. With an area of 700,000 square meters, it is equivalent to the size of 100 football fields.
The Beijing Daxing International Airport, the new major airport of the Chinese capital, whose works were completed over the weekend after an investment of 100,000 million Yuan (€ 15,500 million), will be officially inaugurated on September 30, on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China on October 1, since the leader of the Chinese Communist Party Mao Tse Tung proclaimed it. With an area of 700,000 square meters, it is equivalent to the size of 100 football fields.
Its construction took five years, according to the design of the deceased British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid and the subsidiary of Airport Engineering in Paris.
Located about 40 km from the center of Beijing, it will be connected to the city by a new Metro and High-Speed line, which will undergo a test in September.
The Beijing Daxing International Airport will operate at a maximum capacity of 72 million passengers by 2025, with four runways that will be extended to seven commercial and one military track and a capacity of 100 million by 2040, which will make it the terminal largest in the world, according to its designers.
