Google wants to show that LLMs can help users save time in achieving complex tasks like travel itinerary planning, a task known for requiring extensive research, especially when the magic of LLMs comes from gathering information from various sources (Internet, APIs, database) and consolidating this information.

Key takeaways

  • The demo demonstrates the power of combining the PaLM API with Google APIs to create flexible end-to-end recommendation and discovery experiences;
  • Users can interact naturally and conversationally to tailor travel itineraries to their precise needs, all connected directly to Google Maps Places API to leverage immersive imagery and location data;
  • The Google Partner Innovation team is collaborating with strategic partners in APAC (including Agoda) to "reinvent the Travel industry with Generative AI".
