Kia to Adopt AI Assistants in 2019 - January 2, 2018

Vehicles made by Korean carmaker Kia will include built-in AI virtual assistants beginning in 2019. The plan to build smart assistants into vehicles will make use of tech created by SoundHound, the music identification company that has recently been focusing more on building AI agent software more akin to things like Siri and Google Assistant.

The assistants would be able to do things like suggest destinations based on what’s next in your calendar, or based on your past preferences and choices. They could also offer remote car and smart home control using voice commands, and do Alexa-like stuff including providing news and weather.

The so-called Intelligent Personal Assistant will get its official debut at CES this year, which is coming up in a couple of weeks – but it’s aiming to begin testing in actual cars on actual roads starting in 2018, with a broad ship window of 2019, as mentioned.

Kia might seem like they’re making a future-focused bet on in-car AI here, but it’s actually a growing trend and area of focus for automakers.
