WYSE News | January 13, 2023

Hailed as an AI game-changer, ChatGPT seems to be taking the world by storm. But is it all its hyped up to be? And should us humans be worried? Read on; we put it to the test.

WYSE: Hey, we hear you’re the new kid on the block.
Yes, as a language model, I am a “new kid on the block” in the sense that I am a recent development in the field of artificial intelligence and natural language processing. However, I have been trained on a large dataset of text from the internet, so I have access to a wide range of information and can understand and generate human-like text. I am continuously updating my knowledge base to provide the most recent and accurate information to the users.

WYSE: I’d like to do an interview with you about you and what our WYSE Travel Confederation members can use you for. You up for that?
Yes, I am happy to participate in an interview with you. I can provide information and insights on a variety of topics related to the travel industry, including the use of AI and chatbots like me to improve the customer experience, generate personalized content, and assist with a wide range of customer queries and requests. I can also answer any other questions you might have about my capabilities, the training process, and the potential applications for WYSE Travel Confederation members. Please let me know how you would like to proceed with the interview.

WYSE: Cool. So, can you tell me what youth travel is all about?
ChatGPT: Youth travel is a type of travel that targets young people aged 18-35. It encompasses a wide range of travel styles, from budget backpacker trips to luxury gap year adventures. The youth travel market is known for its desire for unique, authentic experiences, and its willingness to spend money on travel.
Young travelers are often looking for different experiences than older travelers. They may be more interested in adventure and cultural activities, and they may be less interested in traditional tourist attractions. They also tend to be more budget-conscious and are more likely to choose budget-friendly options like hostels and couchsurfing over more expensive options like hotels.
Youth travel is also characterized by its emphasis on community and social interaction. Many youth travel companies and organizations offer group tours, volunteer opportunities, and other activities that allow young travelers to connect with others and make new friends.
Youth travel is a rapidly growing segment of the overall travel industry, with young people aged 18-35 making up a significant portion of global travelers. This demographic is known for their desire for unique, authentic experiences and their willingness to spend money on travel. As a result, the youth travel market is considered as a valuable market for tourism businesses.

WYSE: Ok, and now back to how WYSE Travel Confederation members might be able to use you in future.

  1. Providing quick and accurate information and assistance to customers through a chatbot or virtual assistant. This can help to improve the customer experience and increase bookings.
