General Motors is continuing its commitment to stay on the cutting edge of technology by investing in artificial intelligence for its vehicles. On Tuesday, CEO Mary Barra announced the company's plans to integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT bot, an A.I. vehicle assistant for drivers, and the Ultifi platform into their vehicles. GM is also investing in autonomous vehicles such as their Cruise robotaxis, which are currently available in San Francisco, Phoenix, and Austin.
The vehicle is a software platform, allowing for over-the-air updates, making it possible for the latest technology to be integrated quickly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a formal probe into the operating system used by the Cruise autonomous service in San Francisco, but Barra affirmed that the technology is here to stay and that driverless ride-share vehicles will continue to grow.
