  • Publication number: 20210117873
    Abstract: Embodiments provide optimized room assignments for a hotel in response to receiving a plurality of hard constraints and soft constraints and receiving reservation preferences and room features. The optimization includes determining a guest satisfaction assignment cost based on the reservation preferences and room features, determining an operational efficiency assignment cost, generating a weighted cost matrix based on the guest satisfaction assignment cost and the operational efficiency assignment cost, and generating preliminary room assignments based on the weighted cost matrix. When the preliminary room assignments are feasible, the preliminary room assignments are the optimized room assignments comprising a feasible selection of elements of the matrix. When the preliminary room assignments are infeasible, embodiments relax one or more constraints and repeat the performing optimization until the preliminary room assignments are feasible.

  • Publication number: 20210118071
    Abstract: Embodiments provide recommendations to a guest of a hotel or other type of service industry. Embodiments receive input data including demographics data and preference data for a plurality of guests of the hotel, and receive a plurality of guest interest categories. Embodiments assign one or more keywords to each of the guest interest categories and extract a plurality of attributes from the input data concerning the guest. Embodiments perform semantic analysis to map the attributes to the guest interest categories and determine a plurality of guest similarity calculations comprising a similarity value each of the plurality of guests with every other plurality of guests. Embodiments then generate a plurality of guest interest categories predictions for each of the guests based on the determined guest similarity calculations.

  • Publication number: 20200178632
    Abstract: An automated control apparatus, method, and system for improving inspection, measurement, and fabrication of apparel is described. The system is used to capture an image of the apparel or apparel-related object and convert that image into a digital representation which can then be sent to and stored in a database to be used to recreate ideal apparel with reproducible measurements and patterns. The system also allows for comparisons with already existing ideal images and/or the apparel itself to determine if the apparel or apparel-related object possess the correct dimensions, shapes, colors, textures and fabrics, etc.
