TripAdvisor Allows Users to Create High Quality Videos of Their Vacations Using Israeli Tech

Videos enticing tourists to vacation in Israel and other countries will be produced automatically from text by an Israeli-developed artificial intelligence algorithm, thanks to collaboration between the online tourism giant TripAdvisor and Israeli video-creation company Wibbitz.

Wibbitz’s innovative technology scans, analyzes, and summarizes TripAdvisor articles, converting them into professional-quality video ready for publication in less than 10 minutes.

“We have adapted our platform to support each type of content creator, from small publishers to large brands and sports groups, who want to produce video for their online properties and social channels without being dragged into high production costs and long delivery times,” said Zohar Dayan, Wibbitz CEO and cofounder.

“In addition, public relations agencies in the United States have begun to use our platform to produce video for their clients, to adapt their strategies to today’s expectations in media for video in addition to traditional text stories.”

Wibbitz was founded in 2011 by Dayan and Yotam Cohen and has locations in Tel Aviv, New York and Paris. The company supports video creation for more than 400 publishers and brands including Bloomberg, Reuters, Forbes and AP.
