Abstract

Nova Friburgo is a Brazilian tourist city which attracts different types of visitors. This article describes an intelligent system to be installed at a tourist information centre for assisting those who need directions to this city’s major attractions. Currently, there is an ordinary multimedia application for tourism support but such system is being expanded to include a knowledge base of profiles of tourists. On the base of the tracks or paths a user has already performed during his/her consultation, the system selects the profile which most closely reflects the options taken. According to this selected profile, the system is expected to suggest various routes and destinations based on the tourist’s possible interests, in addition to provide information on hotels and restaurants he/she will likely be interested in. The knowledge base which provides this type of inference is being developed in a hybrid system involving Prolog and C++.
