Samsung to launch Galaxy Note 9 with improved Bixby 2.0

Samsung to launch Galaxy Note 9 with improved Bixby 2.0

It's unconfirmed if this new version of Bixby will make its way to other Samsung smartphones at a later date.

Samsung first talked about Bixby 2.0 late a year ago when it said that the next major update for its digital assistant will be a "bold reinvention" of the Bixby platform.

An artificial intelligence researcher has stated that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature the second-generation of the company's virtual assistant Bixby. He went on to say that Bixby 2.0 will offer enhanced features like improved natural language processes, enhanced noise resistance capability and much faster response times.

In case you missed it, Google demoed Duplex during its Google I/O event, in which the AI assistant phoned up a hair salon and booked an appointment for a client.

Bixby 2.0 probably won't be that advanced, but it does sound like it will take some sort of step in that direction. With Bixby 1.0, Samsung was merely focused on rolling out its digital assistant swiftly which made it hard to expand the ecosystem at the same time.
