Toyota recently revealed a concept car at the Consumer Electronics Show that features artificial intelligence and hinted at the future of self-driving vehicles.

According to Business Insider, the Toyota Concept-i “comes with an artificial intelligence assistant named Yui that can learn more about you over time.” Yui would be designed to read human emotions and learn about drivers to focus on safety. It would be able to assist with things such as changing the radio station and conversing with drivers.

Toyota believes that we are far away from fully self-driving cars, but artificial intelligence can make cars safer and the driving experience more enjoyable. The Concept-i also features welcome lights and sounds, a heads-up display rather than a touchscreen, and a minimalist design.
