Chat GPT & Tourism - with Yonder’s James Donald

The Tourism Chat Show

Apr 4 2023 • 30 mins

In this episode, we welcome James Donald, co-founder of Yonder and Head of Development to the show.

We explore the fascinating world of ChatGPT, a cutting-edge language model developed by OpenAI. Based on the GPT-3.5 architecture, ChatGPT is capable of understanding and generating human-like language, making it a valuable tool for a variety of applications, including tourism.

We delve into how ChatGPT works, including its training process and the types of data it uses to generate responses. We also discuss the potential impact of ChatGPT on the tourism industry, such as its ability to provide personalized recommendations and language translation services and also cover off some of the ethical considerations in using it.

Join us as we discover the inner workings of ChatGPT and explore its potential to revolutionize the way we communicate and travel in the future.
