New Delhi, Nov 29 (ANI): South Korea-based multinational conglomerate Samsung has bought Artificial Intelligence (AI) company, Fluenty. While Samsung hasn't offered much insight into the acquisition as of now, it follows that Fluenty could be a good match for Bixby. With a group of experts in machine learning, natural language processing, and computational linguistics, Fluenty creates artificial intelligence solutions. With this move, smartphone leader Samsung aims to bolster its virtual assistant Bixby. Fluenty is best known for its automated text replies for SMS and third-party social services like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Line, Kakao Talk, Naver Talk and more. Moreover, Fluenty hugely relies on a deep learning model, searching for patterns in text replies most frequently used by people. A virtual assistant like Bixby, with this acquisition, would look to eliminate competition from Apple and Google's voice-only assistants.
