The 'Radar' App from Yahoo Makes Smart Travel Recommendations

 - Jul 15, 2016
The 'Radar' app is a new travel tool from Yahoo that puts artificial intelligence to work in order to deliver highly personalized recommendations for everything from food to activities and entertainment.

Radar acts like a personal travel agent that is able to make suggestions based on an individual's preferences and time of travel. Users are able to conduct simple searches by selecting words and phrases like "lunch," "budget-friendly" or "fine dining," which will pull up results that are suggested based on positive ratings. In order to back up its choices, Radar also lists 'Top reasons why I picked this for you,' which includes factors like user ratings, advice from local experts and TripAdvisor guides.

Within the Radar app, travelers are also able to manage their complete itineraries, which draws information from a user's connected Yahoo Mail account.
