How to launch Bixby

Last Update date : 2017.08.03



A New Way to Interact with Your Phone


Technology is supposed to make life easier, but as the capabilities of consumer electronics become more diverse, the interfaces on these devices are becoming too complicated. User interface designers have to make trade-off decisions to cram many functions into a small screen or bury them deeper in layers of menu trees. Samsung has a conceptually new approach to human-device interaction, :  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. The interface must be natural and intuitive enough to flatten the learning curve regardless of the number of functions being added. With this new approach, Samsung has employed artificial intelligence, reinforcing deep learning concepts to the core of our user interface designs. Bixby is the ongoing result of this effort. Bixby will be a new intelligent interface on our devices. Fundamentally different from other voice agents or assistants in the market.
