GM to Use ChatGPT to Boost User Experience
US automaker General Motors (GM) has announced plans to integrate ChatGPT into its vehicles as part of a broader collaboration with Microsoft. This move represents a significant shift in how GM seeks to use this AI platform to enhance the overall experience of its vehicles, said a company’s spokesperson for GM.
"ChatGPT is going to be in everything," says Scott Miller, Vice President, GM. Using the chatbot, users could access information on vehicle features and program functions, such as garage door code or even implement calendar functions to set up schedules and meetings, reports Reuters.
GM highlights that the use of this technology represents a substantial leap forward, as it can enhance different aspects of the vehicles. "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," the spokesperson adds.
