SMART CARS BE­ING ADOPTED BY SMART AUTO-MAK­ERS

TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT -

Smart cars are slowly shift­ing from the realm of fu­tur­is­tic con­cept to likely re­al­ity, and new in­tro­duc­tions in the field from sev­eral ma­jor main­stream car man­u­fac­tur­ers have for­ti­fied this shift. Al­though some of the con­cepts in­volve tech­nol­ogy such as elec­tric mo­tors and self-driv­ing, the one fea­ture they all seem to share is their in­te­gra­tion with AI. Nis­san and BMW have both part­nered up with Mi­crosoft to in­te­grate Cor­tana into the dash­boards of cer­tain fu­ture mod­els, and Nis­san also will use Mi­crosoft­pow­ered AI to pre­dict when a trans­mis­sion fail­ure may oc­cur. Ama­zon’s Alexa will be mov­ing out of her smart home and hop­ping into a Ford, and Hyundai will be joined by Google As­sis­tant in a sim­i­lar voice-ac­ti­vated ca­pac­ity. Toy­ota’s Con­cept-i stands out, though, with its own dig­i­tal as­sis­tant, Yui, claim­ing to en­hance the re­la­tion­ship between car and driver, bring­ing the fic­ti­tious world of the film

Her closer to re­al­ity.
