    Samsung Galaxy S8 will get dedicated side button for Samsung's Voice Assistant "Bixby

    Samsung has officially announced about its AI based Voice Assistant which is named as "Bixby".

    And Samsung's new smarphone Samsung Galaxy S8 will have dedicated Bixby button on the side of the device.
    Samsung says this dedicated button will make the users very comfortable in using the device. For example, instead of taking multiple steps to make a call – turning on and unlocking the phone, looking for the phone application, clicking on the contact bar to search for the person that you’re trying to call and pressing the phone icon to start dialing – you will be able to do all these steps with one push of the Bixby button and a simple command.

    And Samsung informed that starting with smartphones, Bixby will be gradually applied to all their appliances. In the future you would be able to control your air conditioner or TV through Bixby.

    According to Samsung, its new intelligent interface Bixby will be different from other voice agents or assistants in the market, by saying three reasons,
    1. Completeness, 2. Context Awareness, 3. Cognitive Tolerance
    When an application becomes Bixby-enabled, Bixby will be able to support almost every task that the application is capable of performing using the conventional interface (ie. touch commands).

    And, When using a Bixby-enabled application, users will be able to call upon Bixby at any time and it will understand the current context and state of the application and will allow users to carry out the current work-in-progress continuously. Bixby will allow users to weave various modes of interactions including touch or voice at any context of the application, whichever they feel is most comfortable and intuitive.

    When the number of supported voice commands gets larger, most users are cognitively challenged to remember the exact form of the voice commands. Most agents require users to state the exact commands in a set of fixed forms. Bixby will be smart enough to understand commands with incomplete information and execute the commanded task to the best of its knowledge
