Samsung Electronics

SSNLF

South Korea

The South Korean multinational conglomerate is perhaps best known for their Galaxy smartphones. The company just recently revealed its voice assistant, the equivalent to Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri. Named Bixby, the unveiling of the voice assistant faced public backlash over sexist hashtags used for the “female” Bixby voice. After last year’s exploding Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung needs to show that they’re more than a company with faulty electronics.
