I am the world’s biggest fan of very advanced search technology. My partner and I, our whole team, we are also travel fanatics. The world around us is so amazing, words seldom suffice actually. A big question came to my mind today as I read Venturebeat about a startup called Desti. “Do I really want or need somebody or something to do my traveling for me?” That’s my question.
Expedia is taking the business of travel search up a notch, with reports suggesting it’s currently developing a natural language search engine that will provide a “more human” way of searching for flights, hotel rooms, restaurants and the like.
Hoteliers will soon have a new tool at their disposal which will help them to quickly and effectively gauge the sentiments from its user reviews on sites on the web.
