AI models often summarize. Several tools summarize articles, Documents, videos, and transcripts. For example, read, a meeting intelligence tool, now condenses an hour-long discussion into a two-minute movie containing key points.
The business uses huge language models and video analysis to interpret the meeting’s most important elements. The highlight clip includes participant reactions. Switch off the “Play highlights only” slider to view the shortened meeting recording.
Former Foursquare CEO David Shim co-founded Read in 2021 to gather meeting intelligence. The Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Webex tool provides meeting effectiveness data like sentiment and participant engagement levels. Madrona Venture Group and PSL Ventures provided $10 million in seed fundraising.
An hour-long meeting recording bores Shim. He likened the two-minute clip to sports highlights. He added that some clients saw a significant productivity boost during the test time.
“During a preview period, agency clients saw 30%+ staff productivity increases. In addition, he noted, “Tedious activities like putting together notes were handled automatically, and the sharing of these notes with manually made video highlights reduced the need to set up a meeting to discuss the last meeting.”
