In this session, Saniya Shah is presenting her vision of a more human-centred system, that can respond to the most pressing needs of travellers and solve some of the most demanding logistics challenges. Saniya Shah is an explorer and developer. She has got an engineering background and she has travelled to over 50 countries. She is the CEO and co-founder of the travel tech startup, Pilota.
Saniya combines technical expertise with a deep passion for travel: she has designed a platform that solves one of the main issues people encounter when travelling: flight delays and cancellations. Pilota uses state of the art machine learning algorithms to predict flight delays and cancellations and gets travellers a new flight for free when disruptions are expected. This technology allows people to spend less time at the airport and more time at their destination, giving the possibility to explore more.
