One news report described this car-specific layer technology as a “distinctive virtual helper that is customized especially for its cars, giving customers a more thorough experience.”

“For instance, the virtual helper could incorporate user plans from a planner to notify the driver of any forthcoming appointments and duties, or it could program features like garage door passwords,” that report states.

The way in which GM plans to incorporate a car-specific layer of ChatGPT into its Orwellian vehicles will be far greater in scope than the voice command systems that currently exist in many GM cars, allowing drivers to communicate directly with their vehicles.

“This shift is not just about one single capability like the evolution of voice commands, but instead means that customers can expect their future vehicles to be far more capable and fresher overall when it comes to emerging technologies,” a GM spokesperson said.

You might be thinking to yourself at this point: is it really safe to allow an AI robot to control a vehicle? The answer, of course, is no. And Microsoft’s Bing AI chatbot, which is powered by ChatGPT, recently demonstrated to the world why this is a really bad idea.

In one recent instance, a user asked Bing for the new Avatar movie’s showtimes during a conversation, since the film had recently been released in theaters. For some reason, Bing’s AI robot thought the movie had not yet been released and informed the user that it could not provide the requested information.

When the user responded back that the film had, in fact, already been released, Bing’s AI robot became “angry” and started insulting the user, calling him “unreasonable and stubborn” for not just accepting the wrong response and leaving it at that.
