Is it ok to be afraid of new technologies?
New technologies are usually exciting, but sometimes people don’t feel comfortable with something new, something they don’t know well or cannot understand how it works. Let’s take an example. When the elevator was first introduced, people were scared of the unknown and didn’t want to ride it without an operator.
From pilotless flights to emotion-based artificial intelligence (AI), the emergence of new technologies will undoubtedly impact the travel industry. But will this kind of fear hinder innovation?
