  • Samsung could unveil Bixby version 2.0 next week

The Korean giant has made Chung Eui-suk the new head of service intelligence group, which oversees the development of Bixby and other AI services.

Former vice chief of Samsung Research in America, Chung Eui-suk, is now the head of Samsung's service intelligence group at its headquarters in South Korea, having been appointed to over see the next steps for Bixby which will aim to reverse the lacklustre response the virtual assistant has had, according to the Korean Herald. Many consumers have already grown comfortable with an alternative from Google, Amazon, or Microsoft, and saw little or no reason to give Samsung's AI a chance. This move takes Rhee In-jong, Samsung's mobile chief technology officer, off of Bixby development. It talks about how most consider it a beta and not necessarily a polished product thanks in part to it still struggling to clearly understand all commands.

But the big announcement here could be in the form of a new version of Bixby. News out for South Korea today suggests that some Bixby improvements could be coming soon, though.
