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.
