According to DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics, the progress made to Bixby and SmartThings open a new chapter integrating third party products and services to the AI and IoT platforms at scale.
Bixby, which started as an intelligent interface, is a practical way to use voice-activated commands to interact with the phone. At Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) 2018, Samsung is unveiling new ways for developers to bring a more personal, conversational, and useful intelligent assistant experience to more consumers.
To ease scaling services powered by Bixby, Samsung is introducing the Bixby Developer Studio. The collection of tools offers an intuitive way for developers and partners to infuse intelligence into more devices and services.
Samsung’s connected living vision is centered around an open IoT ecosystem, uniting the growing number of connected devices on a single platform. Available in more than 200 markets around the world, SmartThings offers a connected experience in a single app, bringing IoT beyond the smart home, into the office, car, and everywhere in-between.
Samsung is now making it quicker and easier for developers to connect their devices and services to the SmartThings platform with a new suite of tools in the redesigned SmartThings Developer Workspace. These enhanced tools include SmartThings Device Kit, SmartThings Cloud Connector, and SmartThings Hub Connector. Developers can build and launch on the platform, as well as easily integrate cloud-connected, Z-Wave and Zigbee devices.
Samsung reveals a new and intuitive interface design called One UI. Its clean and minimal design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen – making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use. The experience was re-engineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to quickly navigate their phone.
