Natural intelligence is what makes human mind different from other creatures' and it is represented in many aspects, including the ability to distinguish objects with man's different senses.
Artificial intelligence is a science mainly concerned with designing computers and software that imitate the natural intelligence. They are the fifth computer generation.
Artificial intelligence includes the ability to distinguish by sight, and to distinguish sounds, the experience systems, robots and others. The smart program can usually explain any given data; make the inference of any data that are not explicitly included in the information entered thereto.
Artificial intelligence has many applications, such as medicine, engineering, designing, agriculture, social sciences and criminal science, crisis management, languages, as well as mechanical translations.
In addition, it can be applied in tourism making the best use of information technology.
As mentioned above, the experience systems are smart and can be very helpful when it comes to tourism. For instance, an expert program can be designed with inputs containing tourist's details such as his age, marital status, education and profession, health condition, hobbies, and the persons in his company...
The expert system will analyse these data and then choose the best trip program for that tourism achieving his utmost satisfaction and convenience.
This, of course, can never be realized unless through data base set for tourist destinations and the different kinds of services they provide for vistors such as potable water, medical care, nice weather, entertainment, transportation, and hotels.
