Meet Iris: Your Friendly AI Car Assistant, Making Your Drives Fun and Easy!
Do you ever wish your car could be more than just a machine? Imagine having a helpful companion in your vehicle, like Tony Stark’s trusty J.A.R.V.I.S. Well, now you can with Iris, DS Automobiles’ brand-new in-car AI buddy. In this article, we’ll take you on a journey to discover how Iris can make your car rides exciting and hassle-free.
What’s Iris, and How Does It Work?
Iris is like the smart friend you never knew your car needed. It’s an AI assistant developed by SoundHound, powered by ChatGPT 3.5. What does it do? Well, it’s here to make your drives a lot more fun and easy. Whether you’re dealing with traffic, curious about your surroundings, or just need some entertainment, Iris has got your back.
Beat Stress While Driving
Picture this: you’re stuck in traffic, feeling stressed out. With Iris, you can relax in no time. Just say, “Hey Iris,” and it’s there to help. Iris suggests things like playing soothing music and practicing deep breathing while driving, which can make a big difference in calming your nerves.
Your Trusty Navigator
Iris is pretty good at helping you navigate your way. While it can’t tell you the real-time traffic situation, it’s excellent for planning your route. Ask Iris about your current location, and it’ll give you a basic answer. But where it shines is when you ask for help with a specific situation. For example, if you want to know if you have time for a quick walk before a 3 pm meeting, Iris will give you a helpful answer, considering where you are and your schedule.
Fun and Entertainment
If you have kids in the backseat, Iris is patient and won’t get tired of hearing the classic “Are we there yet?” question. It’ll keep reminding you of the estimated arrival time. Plus, you can ask Iris questions like, “Why is the sky blue?” and get interesting answers. It can even create fun quizzes and tell bedtime stories, making your car rides more enjoyable.
Know Its Limits
Iris has its limits because it’s using information only up to September 2021. So, if you ask for the name of the street you’re on or the exact traffic conditions right now, it might not have the answers. But it’s great at sharing information about places, landmarks, and more, thanks to its data.
Iris Helps You Plan
Iris isn’t just useful inside the car. You can ask it for dinner recipe ideas and shopping lists. What’s even cooler is that it can send those lists to an app connected to your car, so you can use them later.
Iris cares about your safety. If you ask it about driving after having a few drinks, it won’t give you the green light. Instead, it will remind you that it’s not safe or legal to drive under the influence and suggest finding another way to get where you need to go.
In a nutshell, DS Automobiles’ Iris is like having a friendly co-pilot in your car, making your rides a lot more exciting and easy. It has a few limitations, but its ability to provide useful and fun information makes it a fantastic addition to your driving adventures. Say hello to the future of in-car AI with Iris!
