Automobile automaker Audi is opening a $50 million funding round to develop its own cloud-based AI service, the first such project to be launched by a US automaker.
Autoblow is a platform for automakers to connect with the AI technology behind AI-powered autonomous vehicles.
The AI system will work on the car itself, and could be used in conjunction with the company’s self-driving cars.
Automakers have been looking at ways to automate their vehicles since the end of the last century.
However, they have not always been successful, according to Auto Trends.
In fact, a recent survey from the Institute for the Future found that only one-third of respondents believe that AI is the future of transportation, and that they want to drive to work or school with a car in their rearview mirror.
Autos are also finding themselves in the midst of a new wave of autonomous vehicle research.
For example, Google announced plans to build self-parking cars by 2020, which could lead to more widespread use of autonomous vehicles in the future.
Google and its competitor, Uber, have also launched autonomous vehicle testing projects in some countries.
