Tech Talk

Can’t make that conference call? Don’t want to have to take notes for your in-person meeting? No problem. Technology has advanced to the point where we can now outsource our note taking. Meet Eva by Voiceraan artificial intelligence virtual assistant for your meetings. Eva takes notes for meetings you attend and also for the ones you can’t. Eva works in conference calls, person-to-person calls, and in-person meetings. Voicera currently integrates with BlueJeans, Salesforce, Slack, G Suite, and Office 365 and can be used with Skype, Webex, UberConference, Google Hangouts, Zoom, Highfive, and GoToMeeting. Voicera has several pricing optionsincluding a free one. 

I tried her out at a recent NAPO VC meeting. All I had to do was invite her via my calendar entry and she did the rest! Although her highlights weren’t always on point, she gave a pretty accurate rendering of everything that was discussed. I was able to focus my full attention on the meeting and still had detailed notes for later reference! 

Please note that depending on your state laws, you may need to notify other meeting participants at the beginning of the call that Eva is recording the call. She will announce herself on conference calls where she calls in on her own.
