Google Meet will now let an AI attend a meeting for you.
The company is rolling out its “Duet AI” which integrates artificial intelligence into Google Meet, its video chat service.
It brings a whole host of features with it: it can automatically improve the look, lighting and sound of a video caller, for instance, and detect people’s faces so that they do not appear far away in meeting rooms. It will automatically generate captions in 18 languages, detecting what is being spoken and showing translation in real time.
But perhaps most notable is a system that can use artificial intelligence to watch meetings and then recap them. Users can delegate note taking, so that an automatically generated summary of a meeting is sent to attendees when a meeting is over.
And if someone arrives late to a meeting, they will be able to see a “summary so far” that will catch them up with everything that has been said.
