Rainbird engaged with a delegation of Japanese Olympic officials to debate the role that AI may play at Tokyo 2020. The session was hosted by Rainbird’s client Deloitte with the aim exploring how different AI technologies could add significant value at the next Olympics.

Rainbird gave a presentation, explaining how cognitive reasoning could transform how participants, volunteers and visitors might experience the next games.

Concepts included; solving complex attendee issues, enhancing the spectator experience by providing powerful insights and providing real-time coordination and instructions in the event of an emergency.

The session included a live demonstration of an AI-driven ticketing process that uses cognitive reasoning to design ticket packages to meet the interests and circumstances of visitors, while also making compelling ‘up-sell’ recommendations.  

It was a highly collaborative and engaging session.

Expect to see AI changing the way we experience the next Olympic games in 2020.
