A report from Reuters says that General Motors (GM) wants to use ChatGPT in its cars to replace manuals and help users with other things. Semafor says that, unlike ChatGPT, which you use with a keyboard, GM wants to make the in-car AI work with your voice. As part of its partnership with Microsoft, GM will use the Azure cloud service to build the AI.
A GM spokesperson said this about the effort:
“This shift is not just about one single capability like the evolution of voice commands, but instead means that customers can expect their future vehicles to be far more capable and fresh overall when it comes to emerging technologies.”
People who don’t know much about GM should know that Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC are all brands that fall under its umbrella. In the future, cars that have this feature could tell you how to change a flat tire or you could ask the AI what the flashing light on the dashboard means and if you need to pull over or if it’s safe to keep driving. It may even be able to make appointments at a repair shop for car work.
So far, GM has not said what it will call its artificial intelligence system, which is a big secret. Most likely, we’ll find out about this through leaks or when the company is ready to show off the feature at an event.
