Artificial Intelligence: the Coming Revolution in Corporate Travel

We are on the cusp of another technological transformation, one that will change our interactions, communications and experiences in the travel business. What will AI (artificial intelligence) or "machine learning" mean for our industry?  Who's driving innovation forward?  Who's using the technology already?  And where are the early success stories?  This session will include case histories from both inside and outside the field. Position yourself ahead of the curve, and join Patrick Schwerdtfeger on a fascinating journey to explore AI in the corporate travel industry.
