Zoom to release AI assistant to help workers during meeting

Share post:

Zoom has announced that it is building a new AI assistant into its software. The AI assistant, dubbed “AI Companion,” will help workers get more out of their meetings by providing real-time transcription, summarization, and question-answering capabilities.

The AI Companion will be available to all paid Zoom users. It will be able to transcribe meetings in real time, generate summaries of meetings, and answer questions about meeting content. The AI Companion will also be able to help workers prepare for meetings by searching through past meeting transcripts and chats.

Zoom’s AI Companion is part of a broader trend of tech companies adding AI features to their video conferencing products. Google and Microsoft have also released AI-powered meeting assistants, and Otter has developed a bot that can attend meetings on Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet.

The addition of AI assistants to video conferencing software is seen as a way to improve the productivity and efficiency of meetings. By automating tasks such as transcription and summarization, AI assistants can free up workers to focus on more important things.

Zoom’s AI Companion is expected to be released in early 2024.
