Samsung appears to be having data and AI issues with its Bixby smart assistant

According to the Korean Herald, Samsung is delaying the release of its Bixby assistant (think Siri, Alexa, etc.) because of a lack of data (presumably to train models) and issues developing the English version a continent away from the company's Korean headquarters.  Samsung also appears to be behind on the hardware and non-AI features of its upcoming smart speaker product. Frankly, I find all of this kind of surprising considering the number of Samsung phones out there, but perhaps Google is collecting all that speech data from existing Android phones?
