SMART TOURISM : Big data, artificial intelligence and robotics revolutions
Smart Tourism session puts in agenda the main trends and challenges of smart tourism as well as discussion of research result on Smart Tourism conducted by Bournemouth University eTourism Lab. The session will be chaired by Professor Dimitrios Buhalis Director of eTourism Lab Bournemouth University. Smartness takes advantage of technology to process data in real time to produce services and products which are of value for all involved. Smart Tourism Destinations successfully implement smartness to improve the competitiveness of their destination and enhance the social, economic and environmental prosperity. Big data, artificial intelligence and robotics will propel a revolution in the tourism industry. Through using technology to ensure people are interconnected, processes can be designed to generate value to all stakeholders involved. This interactive session will discuss the principles of smartness and how they can be applied in a real life context. The session will bring together academic research and professional practice to explore how smart tourism will enable tourism destinations to take advantage of the emergent technologies.

How Artificial Intelligence will impact the Future of Tourism
Organized by the World Tourism Organization, the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and the Digital Agenda of Spain and the Government of the Principality of Asturias, the II UNWTO World Conference on Smart Destinations, will be held in Oviedo (Asturias, Spain) from the 25th – 27th of June 2018. The objective of the Congress has been to lead and shape new tourism models for the 21st century based on innovation, technology, sustainability, governance and accessibility, components of the Smart Tourist Destinations. Over the past years, advances in technology have led to the invisible ubiquity of Artificial Intelligence without most people even noticing. Although machine learning is already the backbone of many tourism-relevant apps and services, the most visible manifestation of AI in tourism have been virtual assistants. This last Smart Talk of the #SDWC2018 offer the opportunity for participants to get the latest insights on how AI will impact the future of tourism. o Greg Land, Executive Director & Global Industry Leadre, Aviation, Hospitality & Travel Related Services at IBM

Future of Travel Industry, hotels, business - travel industry keynote speaker - ATH / Amex event
Keynote on future travel industry trends for American Express / ATH in Moscow, by Patrick Dixon, conference speaker. Future of hotels, airlines and travel agents -- innovation in the travel industry. Future of business travel and leisure travel. Travel industry continues to be vulnerable to major shocks -- politically, global economy, environment or other factors ranging from volcanic eruptions to the Arab Spring. Strategies of travel companies and global corporations are being overtaken by events. Impact of energy prices on future of aviation and global travel. Expect spectacular growth of aviation and rail travel in emerging economies such as China and India. The irresistible human desire to travel, explore, and gain new experiences will underpin consistent global growth in travel and tourism, despite new carbon and aviation taxes. Globalisation will also continue to force executives to sacrifice home life for travel, despite growth of teleworking and virtual teams. Business travel will grow every year over the next 20-30 years, powered by growth in emerging markets, while travel within the EU and the US will remain relatively static. Russia internal and international air travel will also grow rapidly. Asia will represent more than 40% of the global economy in Purchasing Power Parity by 2015. China travel bookings are already worth more than $100bn a year of which $15bn was booked online in 2012 -- up 500% on 2008 figures.

Highways and Roads Portfolio Planning, Scheduling and Prioritizing 1 of 4
Projects prioritizing in public sector, I am providing 4 videos (please check our YT channel below) with examples on planning for government projects from early initiation stage to construction. This method is applicable to developers in private sector to ascertain extend. There will be four videos. I used project portfolio management prioritizing methods for highways as example. It could be any type of projects, however, there are differences on how we think about it. Highways are good examples because you can initiate the planning form good detailed terrains Ariel maps which give us the visualization to put our data on it to start the initial planning. The first video discuss how to plan the highways prioritizing using the statistics data and location map on the initial stage. After that, pre-feasibility, design and construction stages. It discuss only, here what we can suggest to the consultants and contractors to study, design and build as part of writing TOR scope before starting the projects. It is client side analysis. After that, full studies to choose the right option and estimate of cost will be conducted. To finalize the options priority, we evaluate its cost and construction schedules to prioritize the projects.
