The automotive & IT industry is among the industries at the forefront of using Artificial intelligence to mimic, augment, and support the actions of humans, while simultaneously leveraging the advanced reaction times and pinpoint precision of machine-based systems. Indeed, today’s semi-autonomous vehicles and the fully autonomous vehicles of the future will rely heavily on Artificial intelligence systems.
Beyond self-driving vehicles, AI can also be used to make life in the car more convenient and safer, for both the driver and the passengers. In-car assistants, driven by natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning techniques, allow the vehicle’s systems to respond to voice commands and infer what actions to take, without human intervention. Despite the technological potential of both autonomous vehicles and in-car assistants, an abundance of caution relating to safety concerns, and a desire to ensure users enjoy a smooth, glitch-free experience, these AI systems likely will be deployed gradually.
