Design and Development of AI-Based Tourist Facilitator and Information Agent


Due to the rapid increase in the demand for information that supports tourists after, before, and during the trip, many tour systems are available. However, these systems are not able to successfully replace a human facilitator that is expensive to hire. The primary key qualities of a human tourist guide are his/her knowledge, communication skills, and interpretation of destination attractions. Traditional tourist facilitator systems are lacking in these qualities. The main idea of the research is to design an agent to guide tourists, provide them accurate information about visitable places, without having any bound for a specific region and it will have human-like communication skills along with the point of interest knowledge, which depends on its internal knowledge base as well as its online searching techniques.
