Samsung is using Bixby, their artificial intelligence assistant, to gain maximum advantage from the latest surplus of technologies by collaborations as they are in line to grow into an even larger tech titan.
This week, Samsung declared at CES 2019 that Bixby will now be deployed into map services, car cockpits, health robots, and even appliances. This is not surprising for people who are familiar with the way advanced tech environment works and it is a new application of Bixby for Samsung fans.
Samsung is deploying Bixby because they think that AI will alter the infrastructure of technology. Customers will be able to use more of their products with minimum effort.
HS Kim, Samsung CEO, especially claimed that they wish to use “half a billion” of their selling devices to make connection with internet and their succeeding AI systems. Similar to how Google and Amazon have used their digital assistants, Samsung has made Bixby accessible and deploy-able for the third parties.
Because of previous software failures, Samsung is hoping that Bixby deployments will prove to be fruitful.
By 2020, the firm is thinking about outlaying $22 Billion on AI research and development, merely by starting AI centers across the globe. Samsung has also set a target of hiring 1000 AI scholars by 2020.
Insights of the data of Samsung voice assistant shows that there is surely room for improvement. Only about 4% of the users in U.S. who are utilizing the voice assistants use Bixby. That is quite low when compared with 30% for Google, 44%for Siri, and 17% for Alexa.
These numbers show the reason of why Samsung wants to get maximum advantage from its AI assistant and they are surely capable of getting it. Many Americans may not use Bixby, but they do have Samsung devices. Out of the U.S. citizens, 70% of them have at least one Samsung device. The firm aims on connecting such devices with their future products through the internet and to begin Bixby utilization if they are not already.
Samsung wants to first make their smart appliances and series of QLED premium TVs even more intelligent through Bixby tech. These everyday tech devices will act as a testing ground for Samsung’s renewed AI plans.
Furthermore, they also disclosed four latest
robots that will help in performing many household chores. At their CES Keynote,
one known as Bot Care showed its health-tracking abilities on stage. It could
speak, observe blood pressure, observe more main health problems, and give
medical professionals or family members deep understandings about the patient.
Remaining robots comprise of the Bot Retail for
retail personalization, the Bot Air for air purity detection, and the Bot GEMS,
a mobility trainer for athletes.
