If you entered "how bix" in the Google search box, the first two are "how to disable bixby s9" and "how to disable bixby": Samsung's digital assistant has not been a big secret yet. Korean society, however, does not allow it to happen, on the contrary: At the Samsung SDC Developer Conference, which ended on Thursday, Thursday evening (local time) in San Francisco, Bixby was ubiquitous.
No doubt: The Koreans do not want to leave Google's, Amazon, and Apple's future market. Tangible $ 22 billion will be invested in AI's own products by 2020, Samsung dictated to journalists in a block.
Samsung wants to become a software and service company
Although the company has made money, especially with tangible things, it is unclear whether it will work so well in the future. The taste of smartphone customers is declining, and the products of Chinese companies such as Huawei, Xiaomi or Oppo are becoming more and more popular in the West. According to Samsung's manager, Thomas Ko is no longer a hardware company but a software and service company.
Bixby and its Artificial Intelligence should ensure that Samsung will be well in the future and invested correctly: In seven so-called AI centers around the world, she was a digital assistant; in Germany alone, approximately 100 developers locate Bixby in Germany. Meanwhile, an assistant with a sad name can not yet speak German. But from December it should be so far. However, Bixby would use six numbers in this country regularly, in English, he says. Four million devices, smartphones and televisions would already be dominated by Bixby in Germany.
Bixby comes from Siri's inventors
The mind behind Bixby is not a digital assistant to any stranger: they have developed Siri from Apple. Dag Kittlaus and Cheyer founded Viv, which was bought by Samsung at the end of 2016.
With independent features, you now need to get a projection of Alexy, Siri and Co. Independent developers can now create so-called "Capsules" and thus have access to their own services through Bixby. For development, Samsung provides an extensive Bixby development studio with developers accessing the Natural Language module. Unlike other fixed-phrase systems, users should use a native language. Developers give two, three phrases ("Book a room in Hanover", "Book hotel in Hannover" and so on). In machine learning, the system should understand and formulate commands that have been formulated differently ("How is the weather in Hanover?
Bixby knows the balance
In San Francisco, Samsung has shown very complex Bixby applications from external suppliers, such as Fintel Labs: Users can ask a language assistant for the financial situation, for example, how much money this year spent visiting the pub – for people with poor data.
Data protection or not: The number of digital assistants is growing rapidly; and growth is likely to accelerate because the software will be smarter. It is understandable that Samsung wants to contribute to this future market. The big question remains: are Koreans making Bixby reason to purchase rather than harassment? We will follow Google search suggestions.
