Samsung introduces new Virtual Assistant...Bixby

You've got Apple has Siri, Microsoft has Cortana, Amazon has Alexa, and now Samsung has unveiled their virtual assistant...Bixby. Sounds like a fancy butler name right? But what will make this different from the other ones that already exist? Besides the fact that it's from Samsung?

According to Samsung's Press Release "Instead of humans learning how the machine interacts with the world (a reflection of the abilities of designers), it is the machine that needs to learn and adapt to us." Well honestly the whole purpose behind technology is to improve the quality of life for the population it serves, but to an extent there is a learning curve that has to be taken into account. But anyway...Bixby plans to be able to execute every task that a certain app is capable of doing. That's the Completeness component of Bixby. To promote the Intelligence part of Bixby, it will have the ability to be make sense of an incomplete command, so you don't have to worry about saying the command in the right order or exact syntax to get the desired response. Look for Bixby to be on the new Galaxy S8 which will be unboxed live next week online. I know a number of users that are already excited about the new Galaxy phone, I wonder if that excitement will spill over to this new assistant? ~ChicDivaGeek
