Digital Assistant Bixby

Samsung equips the S8 smartphones not only, but also more models with the self-developed Wizard Bixby. Bixby to solve increasingly complex as interfaces according to Samsung. “Technology should make your life actually easier, but because the capabilities of devices such as Smartphones, PCs, home appliances, and IoT are becoming more diverse devices, the control surfaces are too complicated for users to simply be able to use many of these features,” writes Injong of Joseon Rhee, Executive Vice President of software and services at Samsung.

instead of people to teach how a device to operate it, must learn the device and adapt to the people, so the next Manager. The objective is to minimize the learning curve regardless of the number of the capabilities of a device. Bixby put it on artificial intelligence and deep learning. He differs from other language assistants in three points: completeness, context sensitivity and cognitive tolerance.

as soon as an application is capable of Bixby, the wizard will support almost every function of this application, which otherwise runs via touch control. Also, Bixby in the position should be to understand how an application is used to assist the user in its ongoing activities. That will enable users in turn to go, instead of following rigid specifications of the wizard at any time between voice and classic touch input.

with cognitive tolerance Samsung eventually the problem will encounter users of current language assistants need to remember a large number of predefined voice commands. Injong of Joseon Rhee “Bixby will be enough smart to understand commands with incomplete information and perform tasks to the best of our knowledge, then ask users to provide more information, and to do the job bit by bit”, added. “That makes the interface natural and makes it easy to use.”
