Sabre Labs Publishes 2017 Radar Report

Sabre has released its latest technology forecast, Sabre Labs 2017 Radar Report.

The report evaluates nine key technologies with an outsized impact on the travel landscape, looking at whats happening today and what to expect for tomorrow.

We are in the midst of increasingly rapid and dramatic technological change, poised to revolutionize how and where we travel, said Mark McSpadden, vice president of emerging products and technologies for Sabre Corporation. Technologies like artificial intelligence, neural interfaces and quantum computing each have the potential to produce change as dramatic as the growth of the Internet.

Heres a sneak peak at whats included in the Radar Report:

Blockchain Being hailed as the new Internet of Trust, blockchain is awash in innovators looking to transform industries, governments, commerce and culture. Sabre looks at short and long term effects most likely to change the travel landscape.

Neural Interfaces When it comes to the mind, there are two very different challenges: extracting information out and transferring new information in. Neural interfaces attempt to address one or both challenges, and can do so in either an invasive or non-invasive way.

Space Tourism Mars is the final frontier of human travel for our lifetimes, but closer to home, commercial and government competition is heating up as a 21st century space race. Its not just promising orbiting hotels, but trickle down technologies that will bring all corners of the earth closer together.

The next generation will see a radical transformation of how we live, work and play, said McSpadden. We see tremendous opportunities for businesses to start experimenting with and implementing technologies like blockchain, augmented reality and trusted presence to help shape a more seamless, safe and personalized future for travel.

Sabre Labs is the travel and technology innovation team within Sabre devoted to exploring how new capabilities will impact travel over the next decade.
