Across the board technology is changing, and this is very much the case with travel technology, according to the new Sabre Labs Emerging Technology Report looking at how everything from being checked in at hotels by humanoid robots to vacations powered by virtual immersion, are possibilities sometime in the future and definitely trending.

During the study they looked at the thee major technology trends that may have a direct impact on the travel industry. They found that Conversational Interfaces is hot. What it it? Conversational Interfaces involves messaging and voice technologies, along with new kinds of communication tech that are evolving. Then there is Digital Realities exploring how virtual and augmented realities are taking the travel landscape to a new level.

Last but not least is Connected Intelligence, and if this sounds like androids and AI’s you would be right. This trend looks at the real time role of robots, bots, and location beacons in travel.
