Mercedes-Benz Tests ChatGPT to Make In-Car Voice Assistant More Natural
Mercedes-Benz is partnering with Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service to integrate ChatGPT, the popular natural-language model, into its in-car voice assistant. This move aims to enhance the functionality of Mercedes’ voice assistant, known as “Hey Mercedes,” by enabling it to engage in natural conversations and answer contextual follow-up questions. Initially, the integration will be available to US customers in select vehicles through a three-month beta program. Mercedes is also exploring the possibility of incorporating ChatGPT plugins for tasks like restaurant reservations and movie ticket bookings using natural language.
