Ait tourist information system

Tourist information base for the european clubs affiliated
with the alliance international de tourisme (ait) and their
members

The AIT Tourist Information System (ATIS) project aims at the development of a tourist information base for the European clubs affiliates with the AIT (Alliance Internationale de Tourisme) and their members. A computerised databank will be developed together with a communication network (based on the principles of the Open Systems Interconnection reference model of the ISO) by the touring clubs in the European countries. The databank is to contain tourist information on cities, points of interest, hotels, restaurants, routes, traffic, special events, etc, of all touring relevant European countries. In order to retrieve the right information from the databank (meeting the personal wishes of the tourist), an advanced dialogue between the computer and its user will have to be developed. In that case a mid and long term perspective for the use of artificial intelligence will be necessary. The ATIS project is a concerted effort of AIT clubs; the clubs mentioned in section 3 have taken a special starting initiative carrying out a feasibility study.
