From background noise suppression to facial recognition, machine learning has been working behind the scenes in your conference room from a while

Artificial intelligence belongs to the set of topics about which people speak scarily, as it evokes dark dystopias of total automation in a Matrix-style world, where humans have been submitted by robots. However, the reality is much less worrying than science fictions tell: In the form of machine learning, mister AI (the acronym for Artificial intelligence) is already at work in our daily life.

One of its many applications is precisely in video conferencing. Background noise reduction, echo cancellation, vocal and facial recognition are the four areas where this technology is more promising of great results and abler to increase users’ ease in next future.

Is AI going to do more for the video conferencing industry than the above-mentioned applications? The answer is definitively yes. The applications of this technology are – potentially – very huge, at an extent that is difficult to forecast today.

For example, by using AI it becomes possible to avoid the tedious job to watch the registration of a meeting or conversation to capture the noteworthy moments of a speech or recognize the faces of the speakers. In sales, AI could help salesmen to instantly profile customers and retrieve all the relevant information that are necessary to make the deal. The instant analysis of non-verbal feedbacks through facial expressions during a conversation could be another task where AI could excel.

Other two possible areas of application of AI are team and conference call management. Smart machines could optimize the whole call by performing some predictive analytics, in order to monitor networks and endpoints and detect potential anomalies and take corrective actions before users get affected in the conference room in any way.

Tasks could be assigned to the members of a team automatically, and AI could prove to be more effective than a human secretary in many contexts. The transcriptions of the meetings of your organization could be also delegated to robots, and task planning as well.

In conclusion, AI could bring about another disruptive revolution in offices, especially when applied together with video conferencing. The benefits for businesses would be particularly in terms of an increase in the productivity of their employees, as they would benefit from a smarter conference room with much enhanced features.
