What do you call Samsung’s new AI virtual assistant? “Bixby” Of course!

2 November, 2016 Samsung


The Samsung Galaxy S8 is coming and it probably has more attention on it than any of its predecessors because of the Note 7 disaster and all the hope that rests upon its slick shoulders. Things so far are looking quite promising to be honest and today we have one more detail for you regarding the upcoming smartphone. "Bixby" is possibly going to be the name of the AI virtual assistant that may debut with the Galaxy S8 in 2017. This conclusion was reached after Samsung filed to copyright the name "Bixby" in South Korea just recently. The details regarding the trademark are as follows.


"computer software for personal information management," "computer application software for smartphones, mobile telephones, portable computers and tablet computers, Namely, software used to operate voice recognition system" and "computer software for enabling hands-free use of a mobile phone through voice recognition."


If the details aren't enough to convince you, consider the fact that this news comes hot in the heels of Samsung's acquisition of Viv Labs last month. Viv Labs was closely associated and instrumental in creating Siri, the extremely popular and successful AI digital assistant found on the Apple iPhones. In case you don't agree, what do you think Bixby signifies?
