As the pandemic has closed down in-person meetings, and pressed us online, items like Zoom, Cisco WebEx, Google Meet and Microsoft Teams have entered into our every day lives. Into the fray jumps huddl.ai, a 3.5-year-old start-up from a serial business owner who wants to bring a dosage of artificial intelligence to conference innovation.
Company co-founder and CEO Krishna Yarlagadda says while these business have actually introduced the video conference principle, his startup has a vision of taking it even more. “As we move on. I think the next [age] is going to have to do with intelligence,” Yarlagadda informed TechCrunch.
That involves utilizing AI tools to transcribe the meeting, pull out the prominent points and assist users comprehend what took place without poring over notes to discover the crucial information in a long session. “Mainly there’s a function for each meeting, or essentially we’re meeting for results, and that’s where Huddl comes in,” he said.
Yarlagadda said that present services merely give you a link to a cloud space and everyone included clicks and goes into. Huddl wants to bring some more structure to that entire procedure. “We’ve developed an extremely user-centric architecture and likewise added a layer called conference memory, which basically catches the core aspects of the meeting– the agenda, action items and minutes and then included search,” he described.
They call these meeting elements moments, and they involve capturing three crucial aspects of the conference: the agenda and collaborative notes participants take during the conference, screen captures the user takes utilizing an integrated tool and, lastly, audio, which records a recording of the conference. Users can search throughout these elements to find the parts of the meeting that are most appropriate to them.

Post-meeting this content has a life, and through APIs and combinations, we can [share it with the best programs],” he said.
If it’s an action product in a sales conference, it would go to Salesforce, and if it is a software bug in an engineering conference, it could be shared with Jira.
