NO

The AI can ask me questions (to the degree a reasonable human assistant would) but will otherwise take care of everything. Must be a general purpose AI, not just specialised for this one task.

GPT-4V in wonderland (arxiv). Expect 2024 to be full of developments in agents.

Github: https://github.com/zzxslp/MM-Navigator shows a demo of using GPT-4V to shop on the Amazon app with an iphone

Unquestionably resolves as โ€œnoโ€ for this year. Models are certainly capable of working with a booking system that does this, but until the basic arithmetic issues are ironed out, no provider or consumer is going to want to authorize a bot to make free use of their credit card. Imagine waking up one morning to find it booked you a flight to Aruba on Christmas Eve because you said you wanted to go home for Christmas! (And you are from Saudi Arabia ๐Ÿ˜…)

This is NO, not if it is commercially available. It may be YES for non-commercially available ones.

The simple reason is no company will take that risk.

NO

AI assistant will not be able to book flights for you by the end of the year 2023, maybe it will be possible for AI to do that after many years. The only way AI assistant can help in the travel industries now is to search for cheap flights, check for dates and when to travel thus flexibility of flights according to the amount, AI can also help you to compare prices with trade deals to stay on top of the best deals with the best value of your money. https://youtu.be/HTazXxwjbJc?si=flfFibqBOqYALKhw . In further years AI will be used to improve the travel industry. AI travel assistants may be able to make dining reservations, schedule tours and activities based on your interests, check you into flights, navigate you through the security process, and much more. Speaking of the statistical use of AI in the world of today. AI is used all over the world every day. 77% of people use a device or service powered by AI, although many donโ€™t realize they do: Just 33% of people believe they use AI.

To conclude, AI as of 2023 is not able to book a flight for someone but it can help you to compare and recommend best deals and other experiences for

you.

Definitions are funny. If a general purpose AI, leverages an API for a specialised AI, to book your flights, then it's not a general purpose AI that books flights, it's a general purpose AI which had been modified to use a specialised flight booking AI to book flights. This is what open AI does with it's plugins. Vanilla chatgpt can't do Wolfram alpha stuff, but it can use an API to do Wolfram alpha stuff.

predicted YES

https://main.df6o8i0dpluj0.amplifyapp.com/ app was made using GPT-3 before autogpt era and all that, and here's the blog post accompanying it:

https://betterprogramming.pub/revolutionizing-data-collection-with-ai-and-nlp-using-a-chatbot-to-easily-book-a-flight-559df4b18b55

I also remember seeing a demo by expedia something where they demo "AI travel assistant"

predicted YES

@firstuserhere disclaimer: i only played with the app on a surface level, and didn't actually book a flight or anything

@firstuserhere Thanks, I'll try it!

This seems basically doable right now as a weekend project

I'm guessing Siri/Alexa aren't considered ai?

@RogerYang I would consider them if they are able to perform this action independently.

@Nostradamnedus Hmm so without giving them any initial input, they have to piece together that you want to book a flight?

@RogerYang I request them to perform this action.

Will the AI handle the payment too?

@milanw Yes, although it can ask for a password or a CCV or similar.
