Advanced statistics & deep learning methods power a conversational service – developed to reinvent travel.
psychographic Customer profiling
Travel DNA Decoding
Each trip planning is comprised of a unique set of hundreds of data points: hard facts, deliberate & unconscious personal preferences, dislikes, room styles, travel intents, etc. That's why we don’t just use the data the customer told us - but learn the customer’s preferences based on explicit, implicit & historical facts in combination with social graphs and look-a-like-audiences to decode their unique travel DNA.
Machine Learning based MAtching
Deep Neural Network Matching
Travel possibilities are endless and can't be mapped to static rule sets or complex tree structures. Our machine learning based matching algorithm leverages dynamic scoring functions and evolves with every trip planned. To ensure the perfect matching of your travel DNA to the millions of travel options out there.
Semantic Travel Bot
Our new real-time conversational service creates the most valuable data out there – decision data. It leverages the Semantic Travel Bot to mimic a conversation with a destination expert, by exactly knowing what to ask next – because there are stupid questions. It’s connected to our micro-service landscape via an event-based AWS Lambda architecture to power many more conversational interfaces – Alexa, here we come!
machine LEARNING based attribution
Self-Improving Content Attribution
Personalisation is a two-sided coin: Besides profiling the customer, we take the leap from inflexible hotel amenity checkboxes like WiFi or hairdryer to relevant, decision-critical attributes. Our semantic tagging algorithm characterises accommodation and activities by a unique weighted set of experience-defining metadata.
Not our 1st rodeo
