Travel social network and search engine Tripoto recently launched an artificial intelligence-based travel concierge, which the company claims is the first of its type in the world.
Tripoto.AI is a virtual interactive concierge that can respond to user queries related to travel like destinations, top attractions, travel itineraries, how to reach, best time to visit, getaways etc.
"You can ask this concierge any travel-related question and it will answer automatically. Also it learns on its own from people who are sharing their travel experiences on Tripoto and hence as more and more people share our platform, the concierge improves," says Anirudh Gupta, Co-founder, Tripoto.
The concierge is in Beta version right now and in 2-3 months it would be integrated with the entire product including app, informed Gupta.
The company also plans to add features like travel planning and enable transaction on the platform.
"The AI will become the ultimate virtual travel persona for every traveller, enabling seamless travel planning and transactions," the company says.
So far the concierge has conducted 5,000-6,000 conversations in the past 3-4 days.
Tripoto is funded by IDG Ventures and 500 Startups and claims to have one of the largest repositories of user-generated itineraries in the world. The company also says that more than two million travellers use Tripoto every month and the online community has a cumulative reach of 15 million travellers across platforms.
