It seems imminent that the
revolution recently generated by ChatGPT
, the artificial intelligence system that surprised the world with its precision and ability to solve almost anything, will also reach the automotive industry.
It was none other than
who confirmed that it is working closely with
, owner of the service, on a variant to apply to its vehicles in the not so distant future.
"ChatGPT is going to be in everything," anticipated GM Vice President Scott Miller.
Thus, the objective is that the chatbot developed by OpenAI (a company that works under the orbit of the computer giant) allows them to take driver assistance to a new level.
Based on Microsoft's Azure cloud service, it is expected that with this technology
the cars of the near future will be even better companions when it comes to interpreting voice commands
, but that they will also integrate new features and, above all, adapt and they learn from the behavior of the user himself.
This would make it possible
to optimize functions that already exist
, such as providing even more and better information on car mechanical issues, helping in the search and reproduction of multimedia content or even finding service stations, places to eat or some safety pin in the destination that is is about to visit
But it also opens the door to other possibilities, such as teaching the driver to change a wheel in an emergency, or programming the opening and closing of the garage doors on the fly.
And it would pave the way for others still unthinkable, especially considering that ChatGPT is in constant development and has just taken its first steps.

Is the dream of having your own version of The Fantastic Car finally fulfilled?
Just like in the 1980s adventure TV series, the vehicles could lean on ChatGPT for
bionic properties à la KITT
, the iconic black Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am V8 chatting one-on-one with its owner, Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff), managed alone and came to meet him when he called him through his watch.
For example, smartwatches are already a well-established reality among consumers, and autonomous driving is refined day by day –GM in fact does so together with Microsoft through the Cruise robotaxis–.
So, in parallel, advances in artificial intelligence seem determined to be able to successfully manage all these capabilities, judiciously combining them to offer an experience worthy of science fiction.
Something that at the moment is hinted at, but still cannot be specified.
In this sense, while Lamborghini, for example, anticipated in 2020 that it would be based on Alexa –the virtual assistant developed by Amazon– so that the driver can communicate with brand vehicles,
the ChatGPT proposal seems to have everything to bite the bullet in the car business
just as it quickly did in other areas.
All this, in addition, with the seasoning that it happens in a context suitable for all audiences: just as today anyone can access ChatGPT through the web, the present anticipates that the car will not need to be a state-of-the-art sports car. generation to become a superhero like KITT.
It is that, following Miller's words, a benchmark for a company like GM, to the letter, that this service is going to be "in everything" also means that sooner rather than later it can also form part of the system of any vehicle, without import its performance and its price.
What is ChatGPT
Developed in 2022,
the OpenAI artificial intelligence system is a chatbot, that is, an application capable of having a written conversation with a person
, offering answers and even practical solutions to problems or challenges that arise during the interaction.
It is enough to enter the OpenAI website to have access to all these capabilities.
In partnership with Microsoft, it announced that its cars will have ChatGPT.
It is currently
in its fourth generation
, and one of its differentials with other comparable products is its high capacity in the area of Machine Learning, or automatic learning to constantly evolve: based on 175 million parameters, you can search the web or give a lesson of history with the same ease as drawing, writing an article or even programming a project from scratch.
Its benefits, then, are very auspicious considering
Its benefits, then, are very auspicious considering
the future of driving and the automotive industry, being able to be assembled without problems with other services that today offer limited responses to user demands.
Virtual voice assistants are perhaps the best example of these frustrated attempts to reach the future once and for all: although their potential is clear, they are also a reason for ridicule for their limitations, which can cause all kinds of problems behind the wheel. .
In this way, an AI technology such as ChatGPT opens the door to a more complex round trip than a simple command such as turning the heating on or off: it would make it possible to take the best of the possibilities of talking to the car and raise them to places that today they are still only in the head of a science fiction writer.
