Google Maps rival TomTom creates AI-based conversational assistant for autos with Microsoft

Digital mapping specialist TomTom mentioned on Tuesday it has partnered with tech big Microsoft to create a synthetic intelligence (AI)-powered conversational assistant for autos. The assistant will enable customers to “converse naturally with their autos” and allow voice interplay with infotainment, location search, and automobile command methods, the corporate mentioned.

TomTom, which competes with Google Maps and the world’s greatest mapping platform HERE, used numerous Microsoft providers like its Azure OpenAI Service to create the voice assistant.

The Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service permits enterprises to leverage ChatGPT maker OpenAI’s giant language fashions (LLM).

The voice assistant might be built-in into different automotive infotainment methods and can be constructed into TomTom’s Digital Cockpit, an open, modular in-vehicle infotainment platform, the Dutch map maker mentioned.

Finance chief Taco Titulaer advised Reuters in October that TomTom noticed new alternatives in generative AI and was “investing money and time and other people” into the know-how.

TomTom had launched an LLM plug-in for ChatGPT in July to permit the chatbot’s customers to plan journeys and discover new locations utilizing its maps.

The corporate started working with Microsoft in 2016, when it first began powering Azure Maps location providers.
