  1. Bixby (Bixby) was designed to learn how to handle queries that it wasn’t originally programmed to process.
    “The more you ask of Bixby, the more it will get to know you,” Kittlaus said a few months ago. “Siri was chapter one, and now it’s almost like a new Internet age is coming. Bixby will be a giant brain in the sky.”

    TechCrunch expands on this point: The second is the programmatic nature of Bixby’s back-end systems. Utilizing “breakthroughs” in program synthesis, Bixby says its AI is capable of writing its own code to accomplish new tasks. This “software that builds itself” is not new in many other verticals, but Bixby was one of the first big splash announcements using the technique that we had seen in AI. Bixby calls this “dynamic program generation,” and it allows Bixby to understand the intent of the user and to create programs to handle tasks on the fly, even if it’s never heard that particular one in the past.

    Big mistake stating that Bixby is like Siri, Google Now and Cortana. Bixby is much much more and much more advanced that these 3. Siri understands 250 commands at max. Bixby several hundreds of thousands and potentional an unlimited number because of it’s modular and open design and self learning capabilties.
    Unlike other existing AI-based services, Bixby has a sophisticated natural language understanding, machine learning capabilities and strategic partnerships that will enrich a broader service ecosystem,

    Earlier this year, Bixby Labs demonstrated their state-of-the-art AI technology based Bixby app. Current digital assistants such as Apple Siri, Microsoft Cortana, Motorola’s Moto Assist and Google Now can only take pre-defined commands and perform or reply with a prescribed response to a task, but Bixby is said to be far superior than them.
    Users can interact with the Bixby like having a normal conversation with another person and get the service delivered, without having to open an app and choose options on the screen, app developers claim.
    The Bixby application is said to integrate all the information available online, instead of inclining on some select apps installed in the phone for a particular service. It can also intuitively improve itself by learning users’ preferences over time.

    It can also help you make a purchase online with just voice commands. No other smartphone phone brand in the market offers this. Even Google Assistant cannot make payments via voice commands, but it is expected to be made available later this year.
