South Korean electronics giant Samsung Electronics says it will offer an artificial intelligence service in Galaxy S8, its next flagship Smartphone to be launched early next year.
We are already familiar with artificial digital assistance such as Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana and Google’s Google assistant. Samsung says its digital assistant will be differentiated from other similar ones.
“The Galaxy S8 will be our first platform to be equipped with AI-based voice recognition service,” the Korean Herald has quoted Rhee In-jong, a Samsung Electronics vice president as saying.
The digital assistant coming to Samsung Galaxy S8 will be based on works by Viv Labs, a US artificial intelligence development company whose founder is one of the co-creators of Apple’s Siri. Samsung acquired Viv Labs last month.
Samsung has also plans to introduce the artificial intelligence service in its other consumer electronics products like refrigerators.
Samsung had to halt the production of the Note 7 permanently earlier this year after many customers complained about the phone having exploded or caught fire while charging the battery.
