Mercedes-Benz is teaching autonomous cars how to speak | Daimler Media
Alexander Mankowsky, a futurologist at Daimler AG: “We see the car that drives itself – the autonomous robot – embedded in the overall picture of future mobility, with humans playing the main role in our vision of the future. The task is to develop a cooperative system in which one or more communication languages are essential to allow interaction between humans and machine intelligence in the dense urban environment.” He also thinks that there may even be a robot-language dictionary in the future. According to Mankowsky, calling for people to adapt to the machines should not be the aim by any means in any of the deliberations. It is much more a case of building trust and confidence as human-machine communication gets more and more intensive.
