Samsung's New And Improved Bixby 2.0 Is Coming On 18 October

The announcement will come close on the heels of Samsung Research America's Vice Chief Chung Eui-suk's recent appointment as the head of developing Bixby as well as other artificial intelligence services.

Have you tried Samsung Bixby yet? On the other hand, the company's chief technology officer Rhee In-jong who used to lead the development of the digital assistant's English and Korean versions will now be the head of the smartphone development.

Samsung isn't ready to give up on its personal assistant, though, and it has doubled down on an effort to breathe new life into Bixby. The move is meant to enhance the performance of the virtual assistant, which has received a lackluster response so far.

We have the archery set up at our camp. "I want my daughter to have the opportunity to camp a few times or twice a summer". We are constantly looking at our programming and talking to girls. "We are not trying to replace them", Smith said.

Before Chung joined Samsung in 2011, he worked for Ericsson and is credited for being the software expert behind Samsung Pay as well as the software security Knox. It can understand and speak about eight languages, hoping to take on Siri and the Google Assistant. It's no surprise that Samsung is working to improve Bixby to help attract users and better compete against other assistants, and support for more third-party services sounds like a good addition. The virtual assistant was recently made available globally with over 200 countries including India. The issue is believed to be the company's language barriers and lack of necessary data between Samsung's Korean and United States headquarters. The application of Bixby 2.0 is expected to expand into third party services and products beyond smartphones.

Phone Arena reported that Bixby 2.0 might have input from Viv.

The upgraded version of Bixby is set to be announced at Samsung's annual Developer Conference in San Francisco on October 18. The release of Bixby 2.0 could finally make the AI virtual assistant more useful to the users of Galaxy S8 [VIDEO], S8 Plus and the newly launched Galaxy Note 8.
