Artificial Intelligence in the Office. Future dreams or reality?

Artificial Intelligence in the office is seen a lot in tools related to smart online meetings: microphones and speakers, online sensors, touchscreens and digital whiteboards.

The smart software used by these meeting tools can analyze all kinds of data smartly and quickly. This makes (online) meetings even easier.

For example, the AI applications in Google Hangouts, Microsoft’s Teams and the lesser-known Zoom are automatically paired with presence detection so that it is immediately clear who is present at a meeting (physically & digitally). But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Smart AI systems can do much more, making meetings never what they used to be. Holding meetings with AI also means: recognizing voices, software that automatically takes minutes of conversations and also assigns identified action items directly to participants’ to-do lists.

If that doesn’t save time?

Other applications of Artificial Intelligence in the office workplace are:


Calendar.help is a handy meeting tool that works with Cortana, Office 365, Outlook, or Google calendar. Since Cortana already knows what meeting times you prefer, it uses Calendar.help to find the most convenient dates and times for you to meet.

Adobe Scan

No more standing in line at the copy room for receipts and scanning documents?

Adobe Scan makes scanning documents a lot easier. The smartphone app effortlessly captures multi-page forms, notes and reports. Also receipts, business cards – and even notes on a whiteboard ! – are converted to a digital document in the cloud. The app removes shadows and automatically detects edges so that the result is beautiful and legible.

Healthy Workers

Healthy Workers measures all kinds of different factors within the work environment that affect your health (light, noise, CO2 in the air, temperature, humidity) and thus arrives at data-driven insights and effective improvements.
