Samsung's Bixby assistant is finally available worldwide


Samsung has faced a tough slog getting Bixby to the masses, but now its voice assistant is accessible in more than 200 countries including the UK, Australia, Canada and South Africa. It's been available in South Korea and the US since July, when it launched after months of delays. Part of Bixby's appeal is its positioning beyond that of a simple voice assistant. Samsung claims it learns over time, recognizing "natural language" to make interacting with your phone easier and more intuitive.

Until recently, flights in and out of Australia have been limited to those trying to get home, reuniting with their loved ones, or fleeing places that were no longer safe. Slowly, vaccination is making the possibility of taking to the skies again seem within reach. But what might have changed?

Healthx Launches Conversational IVR Assistant for Providers


Healthx, Inc., the industry leader in healthcare engagement technologies, is excited to announce the Hx Provider IVR Assistant. With the flexibility of a portal and a contact center's responsiveness, this new solution analyzes voice input and delivers quick, consistent, and complete answers conversationally. The Hx Provider IVR Assistant enables payers to elevate the engagement experience with a more cost-effective, efficient, and scalable solution than the traditional contact center. "The administrative burden of providers' work leads to increased contact center volumes and with national averages showing that 60% of calls are related to routine tasks, delays in addressing these calls can lead to potential delays in care," said Mark Rapoport, CEO of Healthx. "We are using our deep understanding of the healthcare ecosystem and engagement cycle to simplify and streamline requests that were previously managed by the contact center. Providers reclaim their time, and payers experience reduced call volumes and significant ROI."
