Samsung develops analog Siri

Apple in the people
Courts and scandals



A long time ago for the Samsung has a reputation for sneaking malicious “spisyvalschika” which always convict the time to peep in a notebook honors. In the role of honors we have, of course, Apple. I think every reader of the move will call several cases of outright copying and plagiarism. But this time, Samsung has gone one step further: it works a former engineer at Apple.

Moreover, now the South Korean company wants to set up some sort of Siri . The project is truly grand. The work has been underway for more than six months, the work involves about 50 companies, including Fitbit, Pebble, Withings, Vital Connect and others. These companies are manufacturers of pedometers, “smart” watches, scales and heart monitors. The medical subjects chosen at random, as the new technology is designed to collect data from all of these devices and report to the owner about his physical condition.

I do not know about you, but I’d like to call this technology as a simplified version of Siri with a bias towards medical subjects.

She called SAMI (Samsung Architecture for Multimodal Interactions), which can be roughly translated as developed by Samsung architecture for the organization of interaction of various modules. To develop it allocated funds in the amount of $ 100 million.

Manages the development of Luc Julia (Luc Julia), an engineer who only last year, has left the company at Apple, where for 10 months has been one of the leaders of the project Siri. Now he is the vice-president of innovation laboratory Samsung, located in the small American town of Menlo Park.

At a conference Luc Julia personally presented the new technology. For this, he was weighed and ran a few laps around the scene. All this was done to demonstrate how the SAMI collects and analyzes the read from the scale, pedometer and heart monitor information. Luke then asked the question: «SAMI, as I worked today?”. At that, in response, the system told him that the rate of physical exercises performed today.

During the presentation it was emphasized time and again that this is just a simple example of the use of new technology. Apparently, Samsung will continue to work, trying to expand the scope and completeness of features SAMI. In addition, unlike Siri, working exclusively on products from the company Apple, plans to introduce support of as many portable devices, regardless of manufacturer.

It will be interesting to follow what the outcome of another undertaking by Samsung. There is a high probability that a lawsuit.
