Abstract: Technological development is having a vital impact on our societies. In recent years, we have seen a remarkable increase in smartphone users in countries with developing economies such as Jordan. This research aims to explore and develop opportunities for supporting cultural heritage in Jordan using emergent technologies. A study was conducted to understand the challenges and obstacles for developing cultural heritage and cultural heritage sites, and to study the new emergent technologies and explore the benefits that can protect and promote cultural heritage in Jordan. Based on the study, an AI solution was designed and prototyped to address how emerging technologies can be used to improve the delivery of tourism services and the visitor experience. This research demonstrates how technology would ensure sustainable economic growth and shows the interrelations between cultural heritage, technology, services, and their impact on the local community.
