'Hack Rod' is a next-generation car that boasts a vehicle chassis that was engineered in part by artificial intelligence. The development of the car came together as part of a collaborative project from a group of stunt drivers and racers, as well as the former Vice President of Creative at Mattel‘s Wheels Division.

The implications of this project could be revolutionary for manufacturing in the automotive industry, since the AI system is able to quickly analyze data and quickly generate new ideas for improving the design of the vehicle.

While there are now many jobs that AI systems are able to completely alleviate from human hands, this powerful technology is also being used to assist people by working with them in harmony to produce more inventive or intelligent results. Another great example of AI technology and humans coming together is the horror film 'Impossible Things,' which was co-created by a team of writers and AI tech.
