Samsung will put Bixby from 2020 in ovens and robot vacuum cleaners




Samsung will introduce Bixby in all its smart home devices, including ovens and robot vacuum cleaners, from 2020 onwards. The company has announced this, as various South Korean media report on the basis of a press conference in Seoul.

The digital assistant, who debuted on the Galaxy S8 last year, will be available on models such as TVs, washing machines and refrigerators from this year, reports YonhapNews . The news agency mentions that in two years Samsung will want Bixby in all its devices for home, provided they have an internet connection. The intention is that they work together, allowing users to control different devices with a single command. All devices wake up when the user steps in and says “Hey Bixby, I’m home”, says Korea Times .

The next step for Bixby is version 2.0, which has to debut on the Galaxy Note 9, Korea Herald mentions . Version 2.0 should, among other things, offer faster response times. This version must also deal better with natural speech and better suppress noise.

Bixby is a further development of S Voice, the voice assistant for Samsung smartphones that can be found on devices since 2012. To develop Bixby, Samsung wants its AI team to grow to a thousand people, including through acquisitions. A year and a half ago, for example, it took over Viv Labs , a company of the founders of Siri, which has been in the hands of Apple for eight years.
