Samsung confirms Bixby's existence as the latest AI assistant
Samsung is on the verge of launching their flagship smartphones this month that is said to come with the latest artificial intelligence assistant named as Bixby. The new AI assistant is claimed to be more advanced than its competitors and supports up to eight languages.
Late last year, Samsung was reported to file a trademark to the word "Bixby." It turned out to be the company's latest artificial intelligence (AI) assistant. The new AI assistant was said to be developed by Viv Labs, an AI startup that is founded by people who originally worked on Samsung's rival company's intelligent assistant- Apple's Siri. Bixby will reportedly be more advanced than all its competitors such as Google's Assistant, Siri, Alexa, and Cortana- to name a few. It is said to feature up to eight languages and will initially debut on the upcoming Samsung flagships Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
The new artificial intelligence assistant is indeed interesting. We won't be surprised if Samsung will consider it as one of the selling points of their upcoming devices. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus integrated with the new Bixby are expected to give us the experience of having a "very smart" smartphone. With just voice commands, we can be able to access the camera to do several productivity tasks such as conducting a visual search, identifying a product, and purchasing that product online.
