Bixby learns new tricks

Samsung’s own digital assistant has been in the market for a while but unfortunately, is still new and amateur compared to seasoned players like Siri and Cortana. However, with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S10, Bixby might be able to do something which no other assistant can do right now.

According to a report from The Korea Herald, Bixby will soon be able to deliver company information from financial statements and will be able to invest in certain stocks upon request. While all the smart assistants can turn on or off lights, place orders and even make reservations, investing in the stock market is something no assistant can do. Of course, a sound investment would require Bixby to process a lot of data including Profit and Loss statements, Balance Sheets and Cashflow statements. Samsung is working with DeepSearch, and other companies to make this investment project a reality. The service should be completed in the first half of 2019.

[DeepSearch’s] goal is to allow users to ask Bixby about risks, investment opportunities, financial information and issues about the companies around them. Ultimately, Bixby will also be able to analyze the company and invest users’ money in shares.

– Kim Jae-yun, Chief Executive, DeepSearch

The technology will be ready in the first half of 2019 which means that Galaxy S10 and Galaxy F might come with the feature which could easily roll out to other Samsung devices with Bixby integration.
