Samsung working on Bixby 2.0, major improvements on the way


Reports also claimed that the Bixby development team will not be headed by Samsung Research America vice-chief Chung Eui-suk will now be leading the development of Bixby as well as the tech giant's other artificial intelligence service.

Samsung's mobile business chief, Koh Dong-jin recently noted that Bixby hasn't been a resounding success, and that Bixby 2.0 would address the shortcomings of its predecessor. On the other hand, the company's chief technology officer Rhee In-jong who used to lead the development of the digital assistant's English and Korean versions will now be the head of the smartphone development.

Before Chung joined Samsung in 2011, he worked for Ericsson and is credited for being the software expert behind Samsung Pay as well as the software security Knox.
