TIM and NTT Data conduct VR-AI digital tourism trial at MWC

Friday 1 March 2019 | 10:02 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) and NTT Data used their appearance at MWC to showcase the digital tourism advantages of virtual reality and artificial intelligence on a 5G network. The partners demonstrated how "virtual visitors" physically located in Barcelona and equipped with VR glasses could be taken on an immersive tour of Piazza Navona in Rome and even interact with other people wearing the same VR glasses in the Italian capital. They could also ask questions using voice interaction and a virtual guide, ie a chatbot trained with AI algorithms.
