Research to Build: AI Personal Travel Assistant, Emma.ai

Emma.ai is a personal travel assistant powered by Artificial Intelligence. Emma.ai is integrated into a digital calendar and when a meeting is arranged, it automatically adds travel time and travel options.

The product has been funded through two Innovate UK competitions: Enhancing User Experience with Personal Data and Design Foundations. In the Discovery period, Snap Out conducted user research on Emma.ai to understand the user problem and the need for the product and meeting unmet needs. We undertook market analysis, market segmentation and competition analysis to understand the wider landscape. In the Design stage, Snap Out developed features that will meet user needs. We built the AI assistant with our development team.
