QOTD: AI in Cars?

GM CEO Mary Barra was talking AI on Fox Business the other day, though she and GM vice president Scott Miller didn't say much in the way of specifics, mostly referencing things like using AI as a voice assistant or for syncing a driver's calendar to the car.

Still, AI is probably coming to cars. I know I think about AI a lot as someone who works in journalism -- is it going to further wreck media? Or will it be a helpful tool? Or something in between or a mix of both?

Back to cars -- how do you think AI could make driving better? How would you use it? Or does it scare you?

Sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    AI "artificial Intelligence". Something developed by highly flawed human intelligence. What could go wrong? /sarc

    AI is not as smart as one thinks

      I take it you don't realize what you just said? LOL

    Interesting point, and sadly you're probably onto something.

    Frankly, I wonder if car aficionados won't all just end up converting old cars to electric so that they can be left alone. I for one am thinking about the Studebaker Avanti in the movie Gattica.
