"I'm not in charge of deciding what we will and won't do, but I'd say we'd certainly be open to having a discussion with them," said Jon Lauckner, chief technology officer of GM, speaking to Reuters. "You have to figure out how would something like that actually work? Would it be something where it would be an opportunity to work together in a joint development agreement?"

Self-driving technology, whether semi-autonomous or fully-autonomous, will only increase in upcoming years - receiving a larger amount of dedicated research.
