Samsung's virtual assistant Bixby is built into its latest smartphones. Smartphones have dominated the last 10 years of computing, but we're on the cusp of the next big platform: voice-activated virtual assistants, powered by artificial intelligence. While the smartphone isn't going away, you'll soon be able to interact with many more devices thanks to assistants like Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa. All the big technology companies – Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft – are building assistant platforms. But perhaps the most promising is Samsung, which just announced a new AI version of its Bixby assistant.
Google is among some of the biggest names in the world of smartphone technology. Everybody knows that Alphabet is a giant in the markets, and is the leading names in stock markets. However, while everybody sees the success, the hardwork is often undermined. It must be kept in mind that to achieve the levels of success they have attained, Google has worked very hard.

Throughout history, technological innovations have advanced and changed how people live, work and survive. First was the Agricultural Revolution, then Industrial Revolution, and now we are towards the end of the Digital Revolution. The Internet, mobile and smartphone industries are at the end of the technology adoption life cycle, having reached significant market penetration and maturity in developed nations. Scientists, researchers and pioneering venture capital investors are on the edge of creating the next major epoch in history, the Artificial Intelligence Revolution (or AIR, as an acronym). There are several factors contributing to the rise in advancements in Artificial Intelligence.
Google has revealed a new personal assistant for around the house that can control, run and organise your entire home using just your voice.
