    The aim of this thesis is the realization and description of an intelligent assistant for the problem domain of tourism, which is based on the heterogeneous online data sources in the field of tourism and it enables the user to have the choice of the most favourable tourist destination for the trip. The assistant allows the user to carry out short-term planning trip in Slovenia. For the realisation of the assistant the scaling and processing of data at the user's location and the available time for the processing of online sources and implementation of various programming interfaces (APIs) that enable the acquisition of user data and the processing thereof were critical. Program Assistant logic is realized in the Java programming language. It contains the necessary libraries for scaling data from online sources and application programming interfaces which allow obtaining user's current location, access to the user's Google calendar, convert geographic (GPS) coordinates to addresses, route calculation and time to reach tourist destinations as well as insight into the state of the weather tourist destinations. The realized assistant is the base of an idea of developing a program or applications which allow the user to select the location trip in Slovenia in a short period. The ideas about upgrading and extension assistant and their advantages and disadvantages have also been described.
