Most working professionals’ calendars are crammed with meetings, which can oftentimes pose as productivity roadblocks because they take too much of your time or you weren’t necessary to begin with. If you are wanting to optimize your meetings, Microsoft claims its AI offerings can help.
Also: AI won’t replace your job yet because it’s still too expensive, according to MIT
A recent Microsoft Work Trend Index report meetings found that “inefficient meetings” people reported “inefficient meetings” as their number one productivity barrier. As a result, in a new blog post, Microsoft identified meeting fault points and how Copilot and other AI tools can help.
1. It can bring you up to speed
We have all been there where — no matter how hard you tried to be on time, you’re late to a meeting you didn’t want to miss. There is nothing worse than the feeling of frantically hopping on a call late, not knowing what you missed, and being afraid to ask a question that was already answered. Or maybe you zoned out during the meeting and missed important information.
To help close the information gap, Copilot in Microsoft Teams can summarize the meeting’s key points in real time so that you can easily get on the same page with everyone else. If you are still confused, instead of interrupting the flow of the conversation with your questions, you can simply ask Copilot for more information.
