Toyota's AI-driven Concept-i wants to be your BFFToyota's autonomous Concept-i doesn't just get you from place to place -- its emotional artificial intelligence will befriend you along the way.

What's interesting about this concept is it examines the relationship that we're gonna have with cars and Toyota thinks that in the future, it's gonna be an emotional one. The more you drive the car, the more UE gets to know you, scanning your emotions, learning your favorite routes, your favorite restaurants, your habits and things like that. And over time, you will develop a sort of friendship with the car, in Toyota's vision. Hello again. I'm UE. It's beautiful out and a perfect day for a drive. Let's get going. So if you're feeling a little bit stressed, it may activate the massage seat to sort of slow your breathing down and clam you. Or if you're feeling exhilarated on a great drive, it may crank up the climate control to really keep you awake. What's interesting about the [INAUDIBLE] Here your concept I is that there is no conventional flat touch screen in the middle of the dashboard. You interact with the entire thing through UEI.

Well, Concept guy is able to be driven both autonomously and in the piloted mode. And, Toyota thinks that the AI is just the thing to keep drivers engaged during that transition.
