Zoom Meeting

Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society

Speaker: Dr. Furkan Eris

During the COVID-19 pandemic many companies had to adapt to a new remote-work setting. This forced employers and employees to quickly implement a distributed workforce model. Because some companies directly saw the unexpected benefits of this new working arrangement in the form of higher productivity and lower costs, they decided to permanently shift to part-time remote operations. On the other hand, churns numbers increased to all-time highs with employees gaining the capability of switching their jobs to a remote arrangement without having to relocate. Companies are now at a crossroad and must make hard and quick decisions on the path forward to improve remote productivity, increase employee satisfaction, limit churns, and reduce costs. In this presentation we introduce a new platform adopting AI-enabled algorithms that improve remote meetings effectiveness and remote teams’ productivity. These algorithms are being successfully integrated into established and widely used platforms such as Zoom and Webex.
