    Should be great for Ford's new C-3PO model.

    Ford's Advanced Voice Recognition Technology Could Have You Falling In Love With Your Car

    In the movie Her, an invisible voice-assistant named Samantha not only reacts and anticipates the lead character’s wants and needs, but becomes intimately familiar with aspects of his life and loves based on the tone of his voice. Ahead of Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona, Ford has announced it’s working on making voice recognition in cars equally attuned to drivers’ emotions.

    “We’re well on the road to developing the empathetic car, which might tell you a joke to cheer you up, offer advice when you need it, remind you of birthdays and keep you alert on a long drive,” Fatima Vital, senior director of automotive marketing at Nuance Communications, explained in a statement from Ford. Nuance supplies the voice recognition (VR) technology for Ford’s Sync infotainment system as well as most other automakers.
    That's not creepy at all.

    I don't want people to speak to me. The last thing I want is a car to speak to me.

    Oh baby is this ripe for abuse or what? Ford (correction) is already reporting that the engineers "along for the ride" with AI "self-driving cars" are falling asleep on duty.

    Now, how would you like your voiceprint hacked, re-arranged, and some foo makes an obscene or threatening phone call in your name and with your fingerprints all over it? Yes we can!

    Skynet has gone active.

    I don't want a talking synthesized voice harping at me either.

    "As Ford Motor Co. has been developing self-driving cars, the U.S. automaker has started noticing a problem during test drives: Engineers monitoring the robot rides are dozing off.
    Company researchers have tried to roust the engineers with bells, buzzers, warning lights, vibrating seats and shaking steering wheels. They’ve even put a second engineer in the vehicle to keep tabs on his human counterpart
    ."

    One of the funniest parts of the movie Her, was when she admitted to cheating on him....with 700 other men.
