AI-powered voice transcription service Otter.ai is launching a new AI-powered meeting assistant called OtterPilot, the company announced on Tuesday. OtterPilot automates meetings and is designed to help professionals save time and increase meeting productivity. The new features will be rolling out to users on all plans over the next few days, the company says.
After each meeting, OtterPilot will automatically send an AI-generated summary of key meeting topics to meeting invitees or directly to an Otter group. Automated summaries are shared via email, with hyperlinks to key moments. Otter launched an automated outline beta feature for business users last year, but the new automated outline feature announced today is the result of an all-new AI outline model and includes improved synthesis. The automated summary will be available to all users.
The new meeting assistant can also automatically capture images of slides shared during virtual meetings. It automatically captures a slide presentation and inserts it into meeting notes. Otter notes that this makes it easy for professionals to find and recall important slides along with the transcript to remember what was shared.
OtterPilot also uses AI to write meeting notes in real time and share them with everyone so they can collaborate during meetings. During meetings, participants can view the live transcript, add comments, highlight key points, and also assign actions. Otter can automatically share Otter Notes with people invited to the meeting or to a specific group.
It’s worth noting that Otter Assistant, the company’s bot that can automatically join meetings on your calendar and transcribe conversations, will now be part of OtterPilot.
The company says OtterPilot ensures that not everyone on a team needs to attend every meeting and that those who do can engage without being distracted by note-taking. OtterPilot also aims to improve the meetings you attend by saving you time during the meeting and after.
“AI helps us in every aspect of our lives. Every day when I drive to work, I am helped and inspired by the advancements in Tesla’s Autopilot system,” said CEO and Co-Founder. ‘Otter.ai, in a statement. “Similarly, we’ve seen the huge improvements in Otter’s AI capabilities, and now our OtterPilot promises to eliminate note-taking, save time, and improve meeting productivity for the next billion meetings of our users.”
The launch comes as Otter hits the milestone of transcribing over one billion meetings. In 2021, the company said it transcribed more than 100 million meetings.
Given that AI has become an increasingly trending topic over the past few months, especially due to the launch of ChatGPT, it’s no surprise that Otter.ai has introduced a new meeting assistant powered by AI. ‘IA to complete its transcription service.
