Galaxy S8’s AI assistant could be Awesome


Samsung’s upcoming AI-powered assistant will be more than useful and capable for competing with SIRI.

Samsung’s Bixby, the assistant ratingedly established to debut with the Galaxy S8, will be able to search for items based on what you point the camera at

You’ll be able to access the feature with a dedicated “Bixby” button on the phone, according to Sam Mobile.

You may be interested why you would need such a feature, but Bixby’s image consciousness functions will ratingedly have a few different applications. Pointing the camera at an object could direct you to online shops where you could purchase the item. (Bixby will also ratingedly be carefully tied to Samsung Pay to facilitate mobile payments.)

Support for optical character consciousness (OCR) could also enable Bixby to act as a digital check outner. Point the camera at some text and the assistant will be able to check out it into a digital format. Indeed there are plenty of standalone programs that have similar functionality but having this built into your camera could be very convenient.

While we still know small about Bixby, the assistant is the product of Samsung’s acquisition of Viv, the AI set up founded by the producer of Siri. Viv shared few fine detail about its era prior to its acquisition, but a demo at Tech Crunch Disrupt last year was impressive enough to generate a lot of hype about the secretive set up.

Now, Sam Mobile cautions that Samsung is still developing programs for the assistant, so some of the final amenities could alter ahead of the S8’s launch, which is requested to happen in the spring.

But, the current rating combined with Viv’s credentials and a previous rating that indicates Bixby will also be able to control all of the S8’s native programs contact that Samsung’s assistant is shaping up to be one of the more powerful assistants out there.
