Microsoft dreams of forever changing corporate meetings
The majority of those working in the corporate environment are not interested in any kind of corporate meetings, as a rule, they are boring and unproductive. Microsoft has made an attempt to break this vicious circle.
As part of its traditional annual Build conference, Microsoft introduced a meeting format using a round-robin camera and a microphone system that can not only identify individual meeting participants, but also decode what they said in real time.
During the interactive meeting, the microphones accurately reproduce what each participant says, followed by a text display on the Surface Hub, a universal office device for group discussions. Thus, any remote employee can become a full participant in the corporate meeting, even if it is difficult for him to hear the speaker or he is not a native speaker.
As a supplement, Microsoft is trying to use its developments in the field of artificial intelligence . In particular, the AI ??reacts automatically to the meaning of the spoken phrases. For example, if the speaker said: “I will definitely create such a schedule and send it by e-mail”, the AI ??will later remind him about this through the chat of the Microsoft Team.
In addition, Microsoft demonstrated the possibility of remote collaboration in real time between the two participants of the meeting with the help of HoloLens Augmented Reality Glasses, while others use information from the Surface Hub screen.
