AI-Powered App Helps Travelers Discover Local Treasures
A vacation planning platform uses artificial intelligence to give custom recommendations for things to do
Gogobot is a travel planning app that will use AI to send you the best suggestions for things to do. The suggestions get as specific as offering brunch spots in San Francisco, to weekend events for locals-only. The app uses a concept called “tribes” to drive its recommendations. You match yourself to like-minded groups, such as budget-conscious students, adventurers or families, and can send customized recommendations to the appropriate tribe(s).
The app uses “artificial intelligence to predict what you are looking for and [highlights] recommendations before you even start typing,” Gogobot's CEO Travis Katz told Business Insider. The app will also factor in weather, time of the day, distance (calculating walking distance for cities and driving for suburbs), and whether you are a tourist or local when making recommendations.
