Samsung set to launch AI digital assistant with Galaxy S8

Samsung Electronics has announced an artificial intelligence assistant service in the upcoming flagship smartphone, as the company seeks recovery from its global smartphone recalls.

As per the statement, the Galaxy S8 will allow users to order food or perform other tasks without going through a third-party application but by simply asking the phone's virtual assistant.

The artificial intelligence service will also be made available in Samsung's other consumer electronics products such as refrigerators.

Samsung is expected to unveil the next iteration for its flagship Galaxy device in mid 2017.

Sales of the Galaxy S8 will be crucial for the recovery of Samsung's mobile business, which saw its latest quarterly profit nearly wiped out by two global recalls of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.

"Our Galaxy smartphones don't provide services that enable consumers to order pizza or coffee, but does provide third party applications. But the new AI platform will enable consumers to do things that they would usually do through a separate third party application," added the Samsung statement.
