It is a service that users can easily use applications, services and devices by reducing the execution 
steps through Voice(command) and Camera (Image recognition). 
It also recommends the personalized features based on the analysis of user's lifestyle at defined T/P/O (Time/Place/Occasion). 
We named this service as "Bixby“.
