Airbnb Using Power of AI to Clamp Down on New Year’s Eve Parties in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NV – This year, New Year’s Eve partiers need to be on the lookout, as Airbnb will be utilizing advanced artificial intelligence technology to clamp down on parties that are held on December 31 in Sin City.
The online rental hosting service will use what they describe as “proprietary AI and machine learning technology” to ensure that individuals utilizing their service are not violating their guidelines. This, according to Airbnb, will apply to 750 guests in the Las Vegas Valley and 1,290 guests in Nevada overall. A total of approximately 63,000 people across the continental United States that will be affected by this new technology as well.
The aim of this system is to try to identify one, two and three night booking attempts for entire home listings over the holiday weekend that could be potentially higher-risk for a disruptive and unauthorized party incident and block those bookings from being made,” an Airbnb statement said. “Guests able to make local reservations will need to attest they understand Airbnb bans parties and that if they break this rule they face suspension or removal from the platform.”
According to the company, the AI technology being utilized is able to identify hundreds of various indicators that could single out an individual property as being utilized for a banned party event. Among these indicators include the length of the stay that the individual is attempting to book, the location of the listing in relation to where they are coming from, the type of listing being booked, and if the client is attempting to book the reservation at the very last minute.
Airbnb – who noted that they began to use AI technology in 2020 – said that they prevented thousands of individuals in 2022 from booking entire homes for purposes that ran afoul of their guidelines, including 63,550 in the United States alone.
