Samsung is all set to give some real tough time to Amazon and Google with the launch of its artificial intelligence-powered smart speakers.
A report conducted by The Wall Street Journal reveals that Samsung is working on a voice-controlled speaker codenamed “Vega” that uses Bixby, Samsung’s virtual assistant.
As per the report, the specifications are not yet decided and there is no clear news about the release date as well. However, if the South Korean electronics giant wants to standout in this tough competition, it will surely need to come up with something impressive.
Samsung, being an ultra-dynamic electronics company, is completely aware of the fact. And Bixby, its AI assistant, seems like an answer to Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri.
In March, Samsung’s executive vice president Injong Lee gave a subtle hint about the company’s desire for Bixby, and it is right to say that Vega will likely to be incorporated into these plans.
“Starting with our smartphones, Bixby will be gradually applied to all our appliances. In the future, you would be able to control your air conditioner or TV through Bixby. Since Bixby will be implemented in the cloud, as long as a device has an internet connection and simple circuitry to receive voice inputs, it will be able to connect with Bixby.”
