Building Your AI Travel Guide with xChat: A Traveler's Guide


Welcome to the tutorial guide on using xChat to create your AI travel guide! In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to build an AI-powered travel assistant chatbot using your travel-related files and information. xChat can help you plan your trips, discover new destinations, and provide valuable travel tips.

Step 1: Gathering Your Travel Information

First, gather all the relevant travel information, including itineraries, travel guides, hotel bookings, flight details, and destination highlights. Ensure that you have digital copies of these files accessible on your computer or cloud storage. The files must be in PDF format. You can add your files individually or import your files by connecting your Google Drive.

Step 2: Setting Up Your xChat Account

If you haven't already, sign up for an xChat account. You can do this by following this link: xChat. Once you've created your account, log in to access the xChat platform.

Step 3: Creating Your Travel Guide Project

In the xChat dashboard, click the “New space” button on the upper left side panel. Give your space a descriptive name, such as "Travel Guide" or the name of the destination you are planning to visit. Select a color for your newly created space and click Create.


Step 4: Uploading Your Travel Files

Next, upload the travel files you gathered earlier into your xChat space. Click “Knowledge Base - Travel Guide to Jeju Island” on the upper right corner of the screen and then click “Add Data.”



Click “Upload Files” to upload your PDF files, or click “Add Links” if your files come from a website. You can also connect your Google Drive by clicking the “Google Drive” logo under “Import from other software.” These files will serve as the basis for training your AI travel guide.


Step 5: Interacting with Your AI Travel Guide

Once your files are uploaded, it will take 5 minutes or less for xChat to analyze the content of your files and create a customized AI model tailored to your travel needs. If you need to add more files, you can click “Add Data” on the left side panel of the xChat platform.

After training is complete, you can start interacting with your AI travel guide chatbot. Use the chat interface in xChat to ask questions about your destination, get travel tips, and seek recommendations. Your AI travel guide chatbot will provide helpful responses based on the knowledge it has acquired from your travel files. Additionally, it can provide the source of its answers, pointing you to the original website by clicking the hyperlinked data under "Sources."


Step 6: Fine-Tuning and Iterating

As you use your AI travel guide chatbot, you may encounter areas where it can be improved. Use the feedback and evaluation tools in xChat to fine-tune your AI model and iterate on its performance. With each iteration, your travel guide chatbot will become smarter and more effective in assisting you with your travel plans.



Sharing the AI Travel Guide with Friends and Family

To invite your friends and family to your AI travel guide chatbot, click the three dots on the top right side panel and click “Share.” Enter their email addresses and choose to invite them as an admin, editor, or member.



Your friends and family will receive an email invitation to join your AI travel guide chatbot, and once they sign up, they can now access your chatbot. This allows you to collaborate on travel plans, share tips, and enhance your travel experience collectively.

Invite your travel companions to join and make planning your trips a collaborative and engaging activity!
