General Motors Co is exploring applications for ChatGPT as part of its broader partnership with Microsoft Corp, a company executive told Reuters Friday.
“ChatGPT goes into everything,” GM Vice President Scott Miller said in an interview.
The chatbot can be used to access information about how to use vehicle features normally found in an owner’s manual, program features such as a garage door code or integrate schedules from a calendar, Miller said.
The news was first reported by website Semafor, which said the US automaker was working on a virtual personal assistant that uses AI models behind ChatGPT.
Earlier this year, Microsoft announced a multi-billion dollar investment in ChatGPT owner OpenAI and said it aims to add the chatbot’s technology to all of its products.
Microsoft, like other big technology companies, has stepped up its efforts to integrate more technology into vehicles, from infotainment systems to automated driving to operating systems that control a vehicle’s battery performance and multiple other functions.
GM partnered with Microsoft in 2021 to accelerate the commercialization of self-driving vehicles.
Shares of GM fell about 2% on Friday amid a broader decline.
