Meet Hunter, your personal virtual assistant at the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh.

What opportunities are there for a virtual assistant and conversation user interface (CUI) within the hotel space? What can a virtual assistant do to augment a guest’s experience, and simplify the work for hotel employees? And how would this assistant live within the current ecosystem?

I illustrated and animated our concept video about Hunter. Thankfully, we photographed the space when we visited the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh one week before Carnegie Mellon and the rest of the city, shut down.
