According to earlier reports, South Korean based Electronics firm; Samsung had planned to launch the English version of its artificial intelligence (AI) – based voice assistance programme Bixby at the end of May but it was put off due to problems with language testing. However, according to now new reports by Yonhap news agency, the firm is planning to launch Bixby later this month which is likely to be launched in the US first and taken to other English-speaking countries.
Bixby boasts of deep-learning AI technology, allowing it to better communicate with users as it accumulates data.
Samsung reportedly began to recruit volunteers for a pre-test of Bixby this week, according to industry sources.
Anyone who has either of Samsung’s latest phones can apply through Samsung’s US website.
Similar to Apple’s Siri, Bixby is the latest creation that Samsung banks on to reclaim its edge as the world’s top smartphone maker after it suffered a blow to its sales and reputation due to the unsuccessful Galaxy Note 7 that had battery problems.
