LONDON – Samsung has on Monday confirmed its much-rumoured artificial intelligence system, which is called Bixby.
Bixby will be introduced when it unveils the Galaxy S8 smartphone later this month.
The technology firm says that unlike other voice assistants, Bixby will be able to support any task users ask of it, as well as understand the current context of commands based on where a user is within an app or service on their device.
Other current voice assistants in use include Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana and Amazon’s Alexa, reported BreakingNews.ie.
“Instead of humans learning how the machine interacts with the world, a reflection of the abilities of designers, it is the machine that needs to learn and adapt to us,” Samsung said.
“The interface must be natural and intuitive enough to flatten the learning curve regardless of the number of functions being added.
“With this new approach, Samsung has employed artificial intelligence, reinforcing deep learning concepts to the core of our user interface designs. Bixby is the ongoing result of this effort.”
