A) Quantitative data analysis will identify top 10 challenges statistically. for example, unavailability of parking spaces could attribute to negative sentiment.

Using quantitative analysis a scientist can extract the top 10 reasons for negative sentiment.

B) Qualitative analysis is also needed. In this step, a human can train the AI engine to categorize challenges met by travelers. The AI can then sift through data at mass and provide more refined stats.

Using qualitative analysis a team of analysis can understand and breakdown user stories into patterns. Once the patterns are defined, the AI can quickly categories all data into patterns .

Can AI be applied to all industries?
