In recent months, the artificial intelligence (AI) technological advancement known as ChatGPT has burst onto the scene like a bomb, generating both excitement and warnings of dire outcomes.
From the classroom to the newsroom, ChatGPT has been turning up everywhere, so it’s no surprise that in the near future it will also be impacting the way corporate meetings and conferences are conducted.
What is ChatGPT?
Here’s how ChatGPT defines itself:
“an AI-powered chatbot developed by OpenAI, based on the GPT (Generative Pretrained Transformer) language model. It uses deep learning techniques to generate human-like responses to text inputs in a conversational manner.”
Here are a few ways ChatGPT could help make your meetings and conferences more efficient and inclusive.
Before the meeting, ChatGPT can create an agenda for the upcoming meeting and generate automated reminders to participants.
During the meeting, the chatbot can take meeting minutes and provide a summary afterward, identify decision points arrived at during meetings, and track action items assigned along with their owners.
Other possible uses include suggesting and tracking vendor and venue possibilities, menu items, scheduling, budget, and more.
Improving meeting dynamics
LinkedIn sees ChatGPT as a way to overcome the frequent meeting dynamic where some individuals dominate the conversation leaving others feeling minimized or left out.
ChatGPT can help there in three ways:
- ChatGPT can analyze meeting transcripts for such communication dynamics as speaker turn-taking, word frequency and dynamics.
- It can help identify the origin of ideas surfaced during the meeting to identify the colleague who initially presented them.
- It can also help pinpoint and identify the individuals or groups that dominate the conversation as well as those relegated to the periphery, ensuring that in the future everyone has an opportunity to contribute to the meeting.
Welcome it or fear it, there’s no doubt that ChatGPT and other similar AI applications will be a big part of everything we do from now on, so it’s worthwhile to try to find ways to incorporate it into our work lives.
And when you’re looking for an unusual meeting space, you couldn’t do better than the Historic Alfred I. duPont Building in downtown Miami.
Originally a sumptuous bank vault owned by financier Alfred I. duPont, such an elegant ambience incorporates the decadent glamour of 1920s Art Deco, visually echoing and reinforcing the impact of your company’s success.
