Meet Bixby and Kestra – new competitors Siri from Samsung


One of the program innovations of the new flagship Samsung Galaxy S8 should be advanced service virtual assistant with artificial intelligence. As it became known on Friday, the South Korean manufacturer plans to call its voice assistant with a male voice Bixby, and the version with a female voice — Kestra. Corresponding trademarks the company registered in the profile Department.

In the description of the trademark says: “the Software to activate the functions of Hand-Free mobile devices and control through voice recognition. To handle voice commands”. The application also confirm that using the voice assistant Samsung you can make online payments.

In October of this year, Samsung bought the company, Viv Labs, founded by the creators of Siri, its offspring and will form the basis of the voice assistant Galaxy S8. During a recent press conference, Vice President of Samsung Ri In-Jong, as well as the founders of Viv Labs Adam Cheyer and Dag Kittlaus told the first details about this feature.

“We are creating an entirely new interface and open system of artificial intelligence, noted In Ri Jong. Modern smartphones Galaxy use different applications when users want to enjoy a coffee or a pizza. The new platform will allow you to place orders and perform other tasks without using special applications”.

“Developers of third-party applications and services can bind them to our aide, he added. Even if Samsung itself will do nothing to improve the operation of the platform, the more services will learn and study the system, the more intelligent it will become”.

“Our children ask how we grew up without the Internet? And our children’s children will ask another question — how do you grow without artificial intelligence,” summed up Adam Cheyer.

    Bixby (Bixby) was designed to learn how to handle queries that it wasn’t originally programmed to process.
    “The more you ask of Bixby, the more it will get to know you,” Kittlaus said a few months ago. “Siri was chapter one, and now it’s almost like a new Internet age is coming. Bixby will be a giant brain in the sky.”

    TechCrunch expands on this point: The second is the programmatic nature of Bixby’s back-end systems. Utilizing “breakthroughs” in program synthesis, Bixby says its AI is capable of writing its own code to accomplish new tasks. This “software that builds itself” is not new in many other verticals, but Bixby was one of the first big splash announcements using the technique that we had seen in AI. Bixby calls this “dynamic program generation,” and it allows Bixby to understand the intent of the user and to create programs to handle tasks on the fly, even if it’s never heard that particular one in the past.

    Big mistake stating that Bixby is like Siri, Google Now and Cortana. Bixby is much much more and much more advanced that these 3. Siri understands 250 commands at max. Bixby several hundreds of thousands and potentional an unlimited number because of it’s modular and open design and self learning capabilties.
    Unlike other existing AI-based services, Bixby has a sophisticated natural language understanding, machine learning capabilities and strategic partnerships that will enrich a broader service ecosystem,

    Earlier this year, Bixby Labs demonstrated their state-of-the-art AI technology based Bixby app. Current digital assistants such as Apple Siri, Microsoft Cortana, Motorola’s Moto Assist and Google Now can only take pre-defined commands and perform or reply with a prescribed response to a task, but Bixby is said to be far superior than them.
    Users can interact with the Bixby like having a normal conversation with another person and get the service delivered, without having to open an app and choose options on the screen, app developers claim.
    The Bixby application is said to integrate all the information available online, instead of inclining on some select apps installed in the phone for a particular service. It can also intuitively improve itself by learning users’ preferences over time.

    It can also help you make a purchase online with just voice commands. No other smartphone phone brand in the market offers this. Even Google Assistant cannot make payments via voice commands, but it is expected to be made available later this year.
