Kakao is scheduled to implement artificial intelligence technology to provide a diverse range of services at Everland through its Kakao Talk application.
Samsung C&T, which operates Everland, has signed an agreement Thursday with Kakao Enterprise, the AI sector subsidiary of the operator of the country's largest mobile messenger.
"By combining the unique experience of Everland and Kakao's future technology IT platform we will be able to deliver new value to customers," Samsung C&T CEO Chung Keum-yong said. "Through digital innovation we will work to create an IT park in cooperation with Kakao Enterprise."
An agreement between Everland and Kakao Mobility, a cloud based parking system will be implemented in April.
Kakao Mobility runs Kakao T the cab-hailing application as well as Kakao Navi.
When customers use Kakao Navi to reach Everland the app will guide the customer to the nearest vacant parking spot.
Since March last year, Everland, Kakao Mobility and Seoul National University's GSES Transportation Studies department have been tasked with 10 projects related to enhancing vehicle traffic flow around the amusement park.
"Through Kakao Enterprise's superior AI, big data technology platform we plan to enhance customer value at Everland," Baek Sang-yeop, CEO of Kakao Enterprise said. "We will work closely with Samsung C&T to provide more convenient and innovative services."
