The influence of chatbots for seamless communication and problem-solving is nothing new. With artificial communication becoming a thing of late, different companies are streamlining internal processes leveraging the prowess of AI to improve workflows and minimise its mundanity.
Today, Artificial Intelligence is pivotal for augmenting workforces, bringing insights through proper sieving & analysing of data, and to make informed decisions for the future. Technology is helping humans decipher novel ways to simplify and speed-up tasks, foment collaboration and innovate on a grand scale; the impact of which we are seeing at our workplaces.
One of the areas where AI is making significant inroads is in video conferencing tools used in workplaces. The video conferencing phenomenon has boomed all of a sudden in today’s lockdown situation. Virtual meetings have become a new normal with the entire population of the world staying behind doors. AI is thought to improve video conferencing tools that enable natural, contextual and meaningful conversations.
With multinational giants like Twitter and Google issuing work-from-home directives for the 2020 calendar, videoconferencing will see a significant injection of technology. And AI will kickstart this and explore the next stage of innovation.
Let us delve deep into this.
For the past few years, advancements in AI have dramatically improved office workflows and helped automate petty, time-consuming collaborative work. For the record, AI can propel innovation in three key areas-meeting room analytics, natural language processing and computer vision.
- Meeting room analytics: The main motto of AI in videoconferencing is to cut the excess flab and make conference sessions smarter and efficient by taking into consideration matters that weren’t taken seriously before. AI can sync email conversations and notifications and automate rescheduling of video calls based on those conversations. It can suggest which resources or documents you need to have before the meeting starts or which screen to enable when resource sharing is asked for.
With the help of data insights gathered through AI, companies can understand how virtual meeting rooms can be used more efficiently.
- Natural language processing: Leveraging the power of AI, businesses can use Natural Language Processing (NLP) to improve video conferencing tools in a big manner. AI can help automatic transcription of conversations, makes notes and also share actions. NLP can also help chatbots to start, join and leave meetings just with the help of a voice command feature.
- Computer vision: Computer vision arranges participants in a virtual meeting room and adjusts the frame according to the interaction of the participants. Computer vision when tuned with AI, support colour and light correction and emphasize faces even in poorly lit rooms.
Artificial Intelligence has the potential to transform virtual meetings and improve screen-to-screen conversations. With innovation set to pour in virtual meeting tools, emerging video conferencing technologies will improve the virtual meeting landscape and amplify the rapid adoption of AI-based video tools.
