Abstract

When a group is traveling together it is challenging to recommendan itinerary consisting of several points of interest (POIs). Thepreferences of individual group members often diverge, but it isimportant to keep everyone in the group satisfied during the entiretrip. We propose a method to consider the preferences of all thepeople in the group. Building on this method, we design expla-nations for groups of people, to help them reach a consensus forplaces to visit. However, one open question is how to best formu-late explanations for such sequences. In this paper, we introduceTourExplain, an automated crowdsourcing pipeline to generate andevaluate explanations for groups with the aim of improving ourinitial proposed explanations by relying on the wisdom of crowds.
