WayBlazer Kicks Off Cognitive Builder Faire Friday Night!

Online travel planning is cumbersome and impersonal. Travelers are forced to use un-evolved search methods, navigating through a tremendous amount of information online before finding the perfect option that matches their trip needs. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work anymore; users desire a more personalized experience. WayBlazer travel intelligence provides the most relevant recommendations for destinations and travel products for every traveler.

By ingesting and merging millions of pieces of unstructured and structured data points, the WayBlazer Travel Graph understands destinations, hotels, cruises, tours, and travelers the same way travel experts would - considering both context and intent. Using machine learning, WayBlazer's Travel Graph gets smarter every day by continuously optimizing new data inputs. The end result is a travel recommendation engine that makes travel search, discovery, and planning a more engaging and personalized experience.
