New break­throughs in IoT In­tel­li­gence, Mo­bile UX

Manila Times - - Sunday Business & I.t. -

SAN FRAN­CISCO, Cal­i­for­nia: Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics Co. Ltd, re­cently un­veiled pow­er­ful new de­vel­oper tools for its Bixby and SmartThings plat­forms, as well as new, pow­er­ful mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ences with One UI and

To make con­nected liv­ing a re­al­ity, Sam­sung is mak­ing it eas­ier for de­vel­op­ers and part­ners to quickly build, launch and scale new ex­pe­ri­ences to mil­lions of de­vices around the world.

“We have achieved sig­nif­i­cant ad­vance­ments in AI and IoT, which will be cru­cial to bring­ing our con­nected liv­ing vi­sion to life,” said DJ Koh, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of IT & Mo­bile Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Divi­sion, Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics. “The progress made to Bixby and SmartThings opens a new chap­ter where third party prod­ucts and ser­vices can be in­te­grated to the AI and IoT plat­forms at scale.”

“The fold­able dis­play lays the foun­da­tion for a new kind of mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ence. We are ex­cited to work with de­vel­op­ers on this new plat­form to create new value for our cus­tomers. We can­not wait to see where the tech­nol­ogy and col­lab­o­ra­tion takes us,” said Koh

Build­ing a scal­able in­tel­li­gence plat­form

Bixby started as an in­tel­li­gent in­ter­face, a prac­ti­cal way to use your voice to in­ter­act with a smart­phone. Now, Sam­sung is evolv­ing it into a scal­able in­tel­li­gence plat­form to sup­port the di­verse prod­ucts and ser­vices in a con­sumer’s life. At SDC 2018, Sam­sung is un­veiled new ways for de­vel­op­ers to bring a more con­ver­sa­tional, per­sonal and use­ful in­tel­li­gent as­sis­tant ex­pe­ri­ence to more con­sumers.

To make it eas­ier for de­vel­op­ers to scale ser­vices pow­ered by Bixby, Sam­sung is in­tro­duced the Bixby De­vel­oper Stu­dio. The col­lec­tion of tools pro­vides an in­tu­itive way for de­vel­op­ers and part­ners to in­fuse in­tel­li­gence into more ser­vices and de­vices. De­vel­op­ers will be able to eas­ily create Bixby Cap­sules — fea­tures or ser­vices cre­ated for Bixby — and make them eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to con­sumers in the Bixby Mar­ket­place. The Bixby plat­form would al­low de­vel­op­ers to eas­ily adapt their cap­sules from mo­bile phones and tele­vi­sions to home ap­pli­ances and other prod­ucts across the Sam­sung ecosys­tem.

As part of its ef­forts to scale Bixby ser­vices, Sam­sung is ex­panded sup

De­liv­er­ing a con­nected life­style for svery­one

Sam­sung’s con­nected liv­ing vi­sion is cen­tered around an open IoT ecosys­tem that unites the grow­ing num­ber of con­nected de­vices on a sin­gle plat­form. Avail­able in more than 200 mar­kets around the world, SmartThings de­liv­ered a con­nected ex­pe­ri­ence in a sin­gle app, bring­ing IoT be­yond the smart home, into


Sam­sung is now mak­ing it faster and eas­ier for de­vel­op­ers to con­nect their de­vices and ser­vices to the SmartThings plat­form with a new suite of tools in the re­designed SmartThings De­vel­oper Workspace. These en­hanced tools in­clude SmartThings Cloud Con­nec­tor, SmartThings De­vice Kit and SmartThings Hub Con­nec­tor. De­vel­op­ers can build and launch on the plat­form, as well as eas­ily in­te­grate cloud-con­nected, Zig­bee and Z-Wave de­vices.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the up­graded Works with SmartThings (WWST) certi-

di­rect ac­cess to SmartThings ex­perts and re­sources. WWST helps en­sure de­vices and ser­vices are fully op­ti­mized for the plat­form, so con­sumers en­joy the best pos­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ence.

Pi­o­neer­ing User Ex­pe­ri­ence and Dis­play In­no­va­tion (sub­head)

Sam­sung in­tro­duced a new and in­tu­itive in- ter­face de­sign called O n e UI. Its clean an d min­i­mal de­sign keeps the most

r e l - evant con­tent on the bot­tom half of the screen – mak­ing it more nat­u­ral and com­fort­able for one-handed use. The ex­pe­ri­ence was reengi­neered to re­duce clut­ter and dis­trac­tions, al­low­ing the user to bet­ter fo­cus and quickly nav­i­gate their phone. Sam­sung con­tin­ues to build on its

- tor and dis­play in­no­va­tion that has paved the way for a break­through fold­able smart­phone form fac­tor.

with One UI de­liv­ers a new kind of mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ence al­low­ing users to do things they couldn’t do with an or­di­nary smart­phone. Users now have the best of both

un­folds to re­veal a larger im­mer­sive dis­play for mul­ti­task­ing and view­ing con­tent. The app ex­pe­ri­ence seam­lessly tran­si­tions from the smaller dis­play to the larger dis­play as the de­vice un­folds. In ad­di­tion, users can browse, watch, con­nect and mul­ti­task with­out los­ing a beat, si­mul­ta­ne­ously us­ing three ac­tive apps on the larger dis­play.

Be­cause the In­fin­ity Flex Dis­play is a next gen­er­a­tion plat­form, Sam­sung in­vited de­vel­op­ers to par­tic­i­pate in this jour­ney from the be­gin­ning. Work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively with Google and the An­droid de­vel­oper com­mu­nity, Sam­sung will max­i­mize the po­ten­tial of this new form fac­tor to create an op­ti­mized fold­able user ex­pe­ri­ence.
