Samsung's newest AI acquisition could give Bixby predictive powers
Samsung acquires Korean AI startup Fluenty
According to reports from South Korea, Samsung has just acquired South Korean AI startup Fluenty.
Fluenty, which was founded by formers developers at Naver and Daum, two of South Korea's largest search companies, is most well known for its Fluenty app that suggests the best text reply based on machine learning.
The app was launched last year and it works with most messenger services including Kakao Talk, Telegram, Line, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
Samsung is expected to incorporate Fluenty's capabilities into its own virtual assistant Bixby.
Last year, prior to the announcement of Bixby, Samsung acquired Viv, another AI startup that was founded by the creators of Siri.
