Samsung acquires Viv, an AI platform created by the developers behind Siri


#Samsung has freshly acquired #Viv, an artificial intelligence platform which was created by the people behind Apple’s popular voice assistant, Siri. Viv takes things to the next level as evidenced by a demo shown by the team earlier this year. What makes it stand out from the crowd is the fact that it can understand complex human commands and build on its knowledge over time.

Speaking of the new partnership, the CEO of Viv, Dag Kittlaus, said – “Samsung, as you surely know, is the market leader in smart devices across a wide range of use cases and industries. They ship 500 million devices a year. They also sell more smartphones and TVs than any other company in the world, not to mention a hundred million appliances and their ambitious Virtual Reality product line. Their product mix naturally fits Viv’s “simplify your interactions through conversation.”

The company has mentioned that while Samsung will probably utilize some of Viv’s features in its products, it will remain to function independently. This will give them the autonomy to develop new features over time without any intervention from Samsung. We can expect to see some form of Viv on Samsung’s smartphones, tablets and even home appliances in the future. Check out the demonstration video of Viv below.
