General Motors, a leading automobile manufacturer, recently announced plans to incorporate one of the world’s most powerful conversational AI technology, ChatGPT, in their cars. The new infotainment system would integrate ChatGPT in a manner that makes it possible to act as an in-car virtual assistant, enabling drivers to communicate with their vehicles.
“The chatbot could be used to access information on how to use vehicle features normally found in an owner’s manual, program functions such as a garage door code, or integrate schedules from a calendar,” GM Vice President Scott Miller said in an interview. Miller confidently stated that “ChatGPT will be in everything.” So far, they are the first automobile manufacturer to use ChatGPT in their vehicles.
Though Alexa and Google Assistant have already found their way into cars, their comparatively limited capabilities pale in comparison to the multifarious abilities of ChatGPT, which has emerged as a dominant force in various other domains, and it probably won’t be long until we start seeing other early adopters.
