(Photos) New Toyota Concept i Unveiled at CES with AI Yui

Toyota wants to use AI to make cars safer because we are a long way off from achieving fully driverless technology.
Toyota unveiled its latest concept car at the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday night — and it's designed to be your friend.
The concept car comes with an artificial intelligence assistant named Yui that can learn more about you over time.
Concept-i is Toyota's latest concept car and shows how the company is taking a gradual approach to self-driving vehicles.
Yui's primary purpose is safety. Gill Pratt, the CEO of the Toyota Research Institute, said at CES that Yui can help retain a driver's focus by performing mild tasks, like turning the radio on or engaging the driver in a conversation.

While many concept cars are built without a steering wheel to hint at a driverless future, Toyota kept the feature and built the car around the notion of having a human behind the wheel.
The clearest example of that driver focus is Yui, Toyota's artificial intelligence assistant. Toyota says Yui is capable of reading human emotions to learn more about a driver over time.
So while Toyota says it's still pursuing fully self-driving cars, it's building vehicles that can be safer while a driver is playing a more active role. The Concept-i is symbolic of that approach, Pratt said at the event.
The car itself is devoid of touchscreens, as Yui can relay information on a giant heads-up display.
As for the car itself, it has a very clean and minimalist interior with only two seats in the back.
