The smart assistant battlefield is quickly expanding to the future of cars
AI has been a major buzzword for well over a decade now, so picking it out as a distinct 2016 phenomenon wouldn"t be justifiably be any measure. However, there is no denying that the field has really been flourishing as of late, hence the influx of increasingly better and smarter personal assistants and automation platforms.
Cortana, Siri, Google Now, Assistant and Home, Amazon Echo and the Alexa platform – one of the next major tech battlefields is already busy trekking rapidly through the obligatory proprietary development stage. But now that our computers, phones and homes are smarter, at least in theory, that is, cars seem like the next prime candidate for some AI love.
It is a fair observation to say that most major car manufacturers are knee-deep in the self-driving and autonomous aspects of future car ownership. But CES 2017 made it clear that traditional players in the AI realm, like Microsoft and Amazon also have some big plans involving our 4-wheeled companions.
