Cars two large Korean conglomerates Hyundai and Kia since 2019 will be equipped with virtual assistant, created on the basis of artificial intelligence. AI assistant will be able to assist drivers and passengers in a variety of situations, making their trip as comfortable as possible and not require them too much effort.
Assistant can, for example, to determine which song plays on the radio using the service SoundHound, and call it aloud. It will be to get ahead of it, trying to guess where the driver goes in a given time, and if his hunch proves correct, it will route to the destination. Guess their artificial intelligence will be based on entries in the calendar of the owner of the car, time of day, habits and peculiarities of life of the owner.
Virtual assistant will be able to tell the passengers the weather forecast for today, choose from a list of world and regional news the most interesting and articulate them in a concise and understandable form. Of course, he will be able to communicate with people using voice commands in the likeness of Google assistant, Siri, Cortana and Alexa. For the first time a South Korean virtual assistant will demonstrate to the public at the exhibition CES, which will begin in early 2018, just a couple of weeks.
