Samsung reveals how BIXBY will interact with your phone ahead of SGS8/S8+ presentation.

One thing for sure is that Samsung will inlcude to the upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8+ its new personal assistant called BIXBY.
How BIXBY will interact with your phone is long explained by InJong Rhee, Executive Vice President, Head of R&D, Software and Services as follows:
Technology is supposed to make life easier, but as the capabilities of machines such as smartphones, PCs, home appliances and IoT devices become more diverse, the interfaces on these devices are becoming too complicated for users to take advantage of many of these functions conveniently. User interface designers have to make tradeoff decisions to cram many functions into a small screen or bury them deeper in layers of menu trees.
Ultimately users are at the mercy of the designers with an increasingly steep curve that makes learning a new device difficult. This is the fundamental limitation of the current human-to-machine interface.  Since Samsung makes millions of devices, this problem impacts the core of our business.
