Jul 18, 2023

Over the last two years, Expedia has re-architected its entire tech platform. This has enabled it to cultivate an AI-first culture from the top down, take advantage of the 70 petabytes of high-quality data it has on traveler behavior, booking patterns and partner needs, deeply root AI in everything it does and innovate new products much faster.

Key takeaways
