Samsung officially announced its new digital assistant, Bixby, on Monday, joining the heated race between major technology companies such as Google Inc., Google’s acronym, Apple, Siri, Amazon, Alexa and Microsoft’s Cortana. .

“Bixby,” which has leaked leaks and predictions in the past months, “essentially differs” from other digital voice-answering aids that the company likes to call agents, the South Korean electronics giant said in a statement.

Samsung explained that Bixby is different from others because it will be able to support almost all the tasks that the application can do with normal means, such as the touch screen, which means that it does not primarily perform tasks that have voice commands.

The company, which is preparing to announce next week its expected smartphone Galaxy S8, that applications that support Pixby “will be more understanding of the context so that the digital assistant understands exactly what the user is trying to do, and will understand and implement voice commands even if the user did not provide the command Full voice or his foot in a random order of words, all thanks to what Samsung calls “cognitive indulgence”.

Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S8 will support the new PDA and will come with a button for Pixby, which aims to remove the need to activate the screen to call the PDA, or facilitate the task of performing several tasks with the click of a button.

“The accompanying confusion to enable voice interaction is a barrier that we have removed to make voice commanding easier and more comfortable,” said Ingong Ri, executive vice president and head of research and development at Samsung’s Department of Services and Software.

“For example, instead of taking a lot of steps to make a call – including turning on and unlocking the phone, looking for the call application, clicking on the contacts bar to find the person you’re trying to call and then clicking the phone icon to start the call – You can do all those steps with the click of a button on a Pixby button and a simple command. ”

Samsung also said that once the Galaxy S8 was launched, some of the previously installed applications would support Pixby. Over time, the company plans to launch a software development package to allow developers to support PDA in their applications as well, Her own.

The company added that Bixby will not only be available for smartphones, but will also support other products, including smart TVs and air conditioners, in the context of the increasing role of digital assistance in the Internet market.

Samsung, the world’s largest maker of smartphones, announced last October that it had acquired Viv Labs , a US-based artificial intelligence company run by a developer of the company’s smart, Camel.

At the time, the company said it plans to integrate the company’s artificial intelligence platform, Viv, into its home appliances and wearables, as well as other devices that may include its smartphones.

Major technology companies are locked in an increasingly heated race to make artificial intelligence platforms good enough to allow consumers to interact with their devices more closely to nature, especially through sound.

Google is the most powerful technology company in the field of artificial intelligence, and other companies, such as Amazon through its digital assistant Alexa, Apple through Siri, Microsoft through Cortana, to rival.
