We talked to AI about how artificial intelligence will affect driving
In recent times, much has been said about what the irruption of artificial intelligence in people's lives will mean for the day-to-day of the future. The novelty that AI presents is the possibility for software to carry out processes autonomously that would normally require human intervention.
One of those processes that we associate with the presence of the human being is driving. However, in recent years one of the most important research fields in which research has been carried out is the achievement of the fully autonomous car. In this way, drivers would not be needed, only passengers. Something that goes far beyond mere automatic cars.
The joint history of artificial intelligence and automobiles began between the XNUMXs and XNUMXs at the hands of Mercedes-Benz. In the eighties, Ernst Dickmanns, an aerospace engineer, managed to make a van have a "sense of vision". Later, also in Mercedes, a car made the journey from Munich to Copenhagen without human help.
In 2021, the German brand got the approval of the Drive Pilot system, so very soon we will have cars on the roads that allow drivers to delegate in certain specific situations.
But what does the AI think of everything that is happening and what is to come? We interviewed CHATGPT to find out.
How will AI affect driving and the car market in the future?
Artificial intelligence is expected to have a big impact on the future of driving and the car market. AI can help improve road safety, reduce traffic and improve fuel efficiency. Autonomous vehicles could also have an impact on car ownership, as autonomous transportation services could reduce the need to own a vehicle. In addition, AI could also play an important role in automobile manufacturing, enabling greater efficiency and customization in vehicle production.
Will driving licenses disappear?
It is possible that in the future driving licenses become obsolete as autonomous vehicles become more common on the roads. However, there is still a long way to go before autonomous vehicles become widely adopted and driver's licenses are phased out. Driver's licenses may be required to operate certain autonomous vehicles in certain situations, and government regulations may also require driver's licenses for the operation of autonomous vehicles.
Can you trust the reflexes of an artificial intelligence?
Artificial intelligence can process and respond to information faster than humans, meaning their reflexes can be faster and more accurate in certain situations. However, autonomous vehicle technology is still evolving, and there are still challenges in terms of decision-making in complex and variable situations. In addition, security and redundancy measures are needed in case something goes wrong with the system.
What advantages does the autonomous car have in terms of safety?
Autonomous cars can improve road safety in a number of ways. For example, they can reduce the risk of accidents due to human error, such as distracted driving or driving under the influence of alcohol. Autonomous vehicles can also monitor and respond to road conditions faster than humans, which can reduce the risk of collisions. Besides, autonomous cars can communicate with each other and with road infrastructure.
How long will we all have an autonomous car?
It is difficult to accurately predict when we will all have autonomous cars, as the adoption of the technology will depend on many factors, such as the evolution of technology, laws and regulations, consumer demand, and the infrastructure necessary to support autonomous vehicles.
Currently, most autonomous vehicles are in trials and are only found in a few cities and specific areas. Also, while some autonomous vehicles are available to the general public, they are still relatively expensive and not available worldwide.
The adoption of autonomous vehicles is expected to increase gradually in the coming years as the technology improves and becomes more affordable. However, Widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles could take several decades, since it will require the implementation of infrastructures and laws adapted to autonomous vehicles and the overcoming of possible cultural barriers and trust on the part of the consumer.
And finally, would you ride in an autonomous car without fear?
As a language model, I have no emotions or fears, since I am a computer program designed to process and generate language. In theory, if an autonomous car has been tested and certified by the relevant authorities, and has demonstrated a high level of safety, then there is no reason to be afraid when using it. However, there is always an inherent risk in the use of any means of transport, and it is important that appropriate measures are taken to ensure the safety of passengers and other road users.
Well, apparently the AI only has good words for this future option, although it always maintains a contained and cautious tone. Not surprisingly, the issue of artificial intelligence for activities that carry so much danger involves many variables, some moral and ethical. On the other hand, it can be a very efficient way of working through issues concerning The sustainability. We will have to wait to see if CHATGPT, apart from intelligence, has prophetic powers.
