Volvo owner Geely to release its own AI model

Chinese automaker Geely says its in-house large language model will usher in a new era of AI-powered smart cars.

Geely has developed its own large language model and plans to release it later this year, the company’s CEO Gan Jiayue said during an internal conference, according to the Chinese news outlet Cailian Press.

The automaker said that it was the world’s first comprehensive AI model developed for the automotive industry and the most versalite in terms of application, ranging from entertainment functions to autonomous driving support.

Geely’s upcoming Galaxy L6, which the company promotes as the beginning of a “new era of AI smart cars,” will have an integrated voice assistant based on the new model, it said. The Galaxy L6 is expected to launch in September.

Cybernews has reached out to Geely for more details.

The announcement comes after China announced a provisional set of rules which will govern the use of generative AI in public after it takes effect in mid-August.

The Hangzhou-based Geely is the biggest privately-held car manufacturer in China. Its portfolio of companies include Swedish automaker Volvo and London Electric Vehicle Company, the maker of the British capital’s iconic black cabs.

Earlier this summer, Mercedes-Benz released a beta version of its ChatGPT-powered voice assistant for car owners in the US.
