Samsung is working on a Bixby-powered smart speaker

Bixby Samsung Bixby bixby rollout Bixby voice recognition Galaxy S8

For example, saying "good night" could prompt the phone to enable do-not-disturb mode, set an alarm and turn on the Galaxy S8's blue light filter. The delay appeared to be linked to numerous reviews that found the AI appeared to struggle with natural language voice commands. Recognition of personal preferences will increase as time goes by, the company said. The company has integrated a three-tier approach for its digital assistant - voice control, computer vision system for identifying objects through device's camera, and on-screen "Home" menu filled with info like weather forecasts and news. The AI also responds to contextual, cross-application commands such as, "Send the photo just taken to Mom".

Patently Apple posted a report on July 05 titled "Samsung to launch their new Smart Speaker Device with "Bixby" at CES 2018 in a Familiar Form Factor".

The president of Samsung's mobile division confirmed today that a smart spacer will be launched sometime in the near future. We think making a smart speaker to showcase Bixby seems like the logical next step for Samsung.

Samsung does have the benefit of integrating Bixby into its own devices with its flagship phone having a dedicated Bixby button. The capabilities of the interface might vary according to a user's country or service provider, Samsung said.

That equates to Total transferring about 97.5 million shares, or 3.8% of its company, to Maersk. Total would also assume $2.5 billion in debt as part of the transaction.

Bixby now recognizes U.S. English and Korean.

Samsung says it will continue to expand Bixby's capabilities.

"A$3 s the Bixby ecosystem grows, it will use its completeness, context awareness and cognitive tolerance to evolve from a smartphone interface to the interface for your life", Rhee noted in a statement last month.
