We live in a historical moment, the moment when artificial intelligence is going to transform our world, in ways that we cannot now fully understand, but without a doubt transforming the way we work, we live, we travel.

We can’t know the future, but we can give some clues to better know where this transformation will come from, what areas of opportunity will open for us, what we must do to be prepared.

The evolution of the technologies that support the development of artificial intelligence is very fast, and it is accelerating, it is crucial to understand in what direction it does, understand the positioning of the leaders of the sector, imagine uses and business opportunities.

For Microsoft, the development of artificial intelligence, and the areas it opens, is not just a company bet, but a change for humanity, a change for the better.

In the tourism sector the possibilities are enormous, helping to provide the traveler with a richer, more connected, more secure experience. But it also allows us to optimize our internal processes, our offer, our positioning.
In short, a new world that opens before our eyes. A better world.
