Samsung Adds Bixby To Its Smart Family Hub Refrigerator

Samsung Adds Bixby To Its Smart Family Hub Refrigerator

Tim Baxter, president and chief executive of Samsung's U.S. arm, said the company's ultimate goal was an "eco-system of devices working together to produce unique experiences", during a presentation focussed on smart things at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. That aside, what's on offer in 2018 is fairly compelling.

The new Family Hub keeps the family more closely connected and organized, with the customized ability to share calendars, photos and notes.

Integration with Smart Things means users can control a wide range of devices at home from the touchscreen on the fridge.

Disturbing reason Craig McLachlan's accusers waited years to come forward

Samsung demonstrated its in-car connectivity vision in the form of the Digital Cockpit, an automobile dashboard design that allows drivers to control the car's electronics as well as connected devices at home through voice, touch, gesture and other triggers.

The SmartThings platform is to be compatible with Samsung's own products as well as some third-party devices, including the Ring doorbell and certain internet-connected cameras and thermostats. You'll be able to create up to six user profiles, and Bixby should be able to distinguish between commands each of the people associated with them, but we sadly couldn't check to see if Bixby could tell me apart from intrepid reporter Jess Conditt. Samsung has also added two new food-centric apps: Meal Planner is a food management app that provides recipes while accounting for food preferences and dietary restrictions. Through the Family Hub, users will be able to know the contents of their refrigerator anywhere they are in the world. Samsung also integrated its Bixby intelligent assistant platform into its new TVs, it said. And Bixby learns individual voices, so will personalise answers depending on who asks. Users can access millions of songs through various music streaming platforms and live radio apps, and mirror their Samsung Smart TV [1]. This year, the company is taking this to the next level - by putting AKG speakers on its smart refrigerator, so that you can listen or sing to your favorite tunes without the need to invest a speaker for your kitchen. The AI Center, which includes four labs in Toronto, Montreal, Cambridge (UK) and Russian Federation in 2018, will be coupled with Samsung's ongoing work in Korea and Silicon Valley and the company's M&A activities to drive its AI ambitions forward. Additionally, users can now stream content from their smartphone to the Family Hub refrigerator. This will ensure that there is a Family Hub configuration to meet the needs of all consumers.
