Jodie fixing issues but creating ones of her own

Teletext Holidays might be basking in the enthusiasm from consumers for its recently launched Linguabot tool, but it turns out “Jodie” is also striking a chord with consumers for reasons other than those related to travel.

Word reaches us that the attractive [of course] assistant, as well as helping users unravel their travel woes on the website, has been asked out on a number of dates and even had to deal with a tricky proposal of marriage.

The trick with a Linguabot, essentially, is to ensure he/she expands their knowledge and quality of responses by the types of questions it receives and the answers it gives.

The mind boggles of the impact Jodie's popularity might have in the future!

Q: What is the easiest way to get from Central London to Paris.

A: Catch the Eurostar from Waterloo; meet me on platform 17, with flowers; whisk me away for the weekend.

Erm... We jest. It is, in fact, a very innovative tool and is pretty useful...
