Grab and OpenAI Team Up to Enhance User and Employee Experiences with AI

by May 30, 2024

Southeast Asian superapp Grab and OpenAI have announced a strategic collaboration to develop and implement advanced AI solutions aimed at enhancing the experience for users, partners, and employees.

The initial phase of the collaboration will target three key areas, which are accessibility, customer support, and mapping.

Grab aims to make its services more accessible by utilising state-of-the-art text and voice capabilities, particularly for visually impaired or elderly users who may struggle with navigating the app.

The collaboration will also explore AI technology to develop chatbots that can better understand and resolve user issues more efficiently.

Additionally, OpenAI’s vision capabilities will be leveraged to enhance Grab’s mapping efforts, automating data extraction from visual images to update GrabMaps faster and improve the experience for consumers and driver-partners.

Grab also plans to pilot ChatGPT Enterprise among select employees to boost productivity and support the wider use of AI tools across its workforce.
