DETROIT (dpa-AFX) – The US automaker General Motors wants to make its vehicles more talkative. The company is developing an artificial intelligence-based language assistant whose capabilities should go beyond understanding simple instructions, GM manager Scott Miller told the website “Semafor”. For example, if a warning lamp goes on, you should be able to ask the car whether you can continue driving with the error or whether you should stop immediately. And if a tire change is necessary, you should be able to ask the vehicle for instructions.
GM wants to use the technology behind the text machine ChatGPT for the language assistant, reported “Semafor” on Friday. The software will use Microsoft’s cloud platform Azure, which cooperates with the ChatGPT developer OpenAI, it said, citing informed people.
So far, car manufacturers have integrated language assistant software such as Alexa from Amazon into their cars. In January at the CES technology fair, BMW presented the idea of a talking car that you can talk to as a vision of the future./so/DP/he
