Specialized AI will even help us improve that scourge of productivity, the meeting. Meetings will be recorded, transcribed, and archived in a knowledge repository. Any time someone in a meeting volunteers to tackle an action item, AIs will record and track those commitments, and automatically connect the ultimate completion of that item back to the original meeting from whence it sprang. Sound far-fetched? The AI techniques for classification, pattern-matching, and suggesting potentially related information are already part of our everyday lives. You encounter them every time you start typing a query into Google’s search box, and the autocomplete offers a set of choices, or every time you look at a product on Amazon, and the site recommends other products you might like.
