Jurny, Inc., a pioneering hospitality tech company powering operations for short-term rental (STR) properties across the globe, is rolling out its latest and most robust operating system to date. Available now, JurnyOS 2.0 is powered by GPT-4 and features dynamic AI tools designed to connect, optimize and automate operational tasks and guest management.
JurnyOS 2.0 Highlights:
Never Miss a Message with Nia - Nia is Jurny's advanced AI assistant built on GPT-4, which can automate tasks and enhance customer service while improving operational efficiency. It is already more accurate at many tasks than the average human agent and, thanks to generative ai, is rapidly improving each day; Nia can already handle full conversations with guests, making it infinitely scalable.
Premier Management in a Free PMS - Jurny now offers the industry's only completely free PMS leveraging generative AI to assist hosts with managing their properties. With no onboarding fees, an intuitive user interface (UI), and the help of Nia, properties are live in minutes, not months.
One (Click) and Done - Jurny's new OS and PMS feature the industry's most robust integration for Airbnb. Property managers can sign in once to seamlessly connect to the Airbnb platform, sync content and historical data, update rates and availability, and receive bookings in real time from the easy-to-use Jurny platform.
All-in-One Vertically Integrated System - Remove the hassle of finding the best tools and say goodbye to tracking multiple licenses and renewal dates. Jurny offers a natively integrated best-in-class technology stack, including popular tools like Wheelhouse, Autohost, Minut and others for advanced analytics & reporting, channel management, reputation management, electronic payments, IoT access control, website development and more.
Luca Zambello co-founded Jurny after more than a decade of working in different areas of the hospitality industry. After building and managing a luxury rental business in Los Angeles, which grew to more than 300 units across five markets and grossed over $1 million in its first year, Zambello quickly realized how archaic existing operational management solutions were and began developing tech in house. In 2019, he and his team launched Jurny to fix the fragmented and costly property management model through modern, transformative technologies.
Today, Jurny is leading the industry's transition to the digital age, utilizing AI and automation in smart ways that enhance the guest experience. According to a recent report from Skift on generative AI's impact on travel, customer service and guest support is one of the most expensive cost centers for short-term rental management companies and the hospitality industry as a whole.
"The release of Jurny's AI-enhanced technology and access to its premium PMS for free is poised to transform the industry," said Andrew Kitchell, Founder & CEO of Wheelhouse. "By democratizing access to advanced tools that were once only available to the biggest players, Jurny is not just changing the game, it's leveling the playing field for everyone in the industry."

FEATURES AND ADVICE
BrainHQ | March 10, 2023
BrainHQ, a brain training system, has recently announced the conclusion of its pilot study, showing that brain training can help space travel. The research was conducted with computerized brain training and Posit Science marketed it.
The researchers found that space travel has a hazardous impact on the brain because of the gravitational forces involved in liftoff and landing, radiation, microgravity, and isolation. These impacts resulted in effects like intracranial pressure, impaired vision, vestibular dysfunction, altered fluid levels in veins and arteries, white matter changes, and premature aging. They grouped the astronauts having qualities like age, education and discipline who are employees from the Johnson Space Center for the Increasing Cognitive Ability/Reserve Using Software (ICARUS) pilot study. It tested their cognitive performance through its assessments and Cognition Test Battery, a software-based test dedicated to NASA.
It trained five of these participants for about 15 hours of training, 18 sessions and over the 90 days. They improved on internal measures of its exercises with a 71% increase on average in primary performance metrics. On the NASA Cognition Test Battery, they showed 19% gains on average. With preliminary findings, the pilot study provided data and feasibility for further research.
CEO of Posit Science, Dr. Henry Mahncke said, “These are exciting results in a new area, which is literally about the New Frontier.” He added, “Whether it’s returning to the moon or colonizing Mars, we know that addressing the cognitive challenges of long-term space flight is essential. These results fit nicely with what we’ve seen in building cognitive reserve in older adults and people recovering from brain injury and brain fog, as well as improving peak performers — such as special forces, law enforcement, or athletes — expected to perform at superhuman levels under extreme time and performance pressures.”

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, BrainHQ, a wellness and fitness services provider, has improved mental ability and performance since 2002. The international team of neuroscientists and brain experts tested its brain training system. Its exercise is scientific-based, and researchers validated its real benefits in their published papers. The experts design, test and redefine its online exercises for cognitive issues, healthy aging and mental conditions. It uses a special algorithm to adapt difficulty in each exercise at the optimum level. Its exercises are divided into different levels for a flexible period, depending on the personal training goals, on any computer or mobile device.
