GM considers implementing ChatGPT in future vehicles

Virtual assistants in General Motor vehicles may soon be powered by the AI language models behind OpenAI’s ChatGPT. According to a GM executive, the American carmaker is looking into potential ChatGPT applications as part of a larger partnership with Microsoft. Similar to last week, “people with knowledge of the project” had revealed GM was creating a virtual personal assistant for its vehicles utilizing Microsoft’s Azure cloud service, which contains a ChatGPT API.

GM Vice President Scott Miller revealed some information about the initiative, stating that “ChatGPT is going to be in everything.” Miller asserted that the chatbot could go beyond the voice commands currently used in cars by informing users about the features of their car. For example, it could suggest a course of action when a diagnostic light appears on the dashboard or show a video tutorial on the infotainment system to show users how to change a flat tire.

Meanwhile, in 2021, Microsoft collaborated with GMs self-driving subsidiary Cruise to use Microsoft’s Azure platform to build GM’s autonomous vehicles. Which establishes a “long-term strategic alliance” between the two companies. 

It may be some time before we see sequences from Knight Rider being reenacted in a new Chevy because there is no release date or even a formal announcement for GM’s ChatGPT integration plans as of yet.

Additionally, Ford’s unnamed assistant may be programmed to perform duties like programming garage door codes or integrating user schedules from a calendar to alert the driver to any future appointments and obligations. Because GM intends to add a “car-specific layer” to OpenAI’s technology, its voice assistant won’t necessarily act like ChatGPT or Bing Chat.
