Ow! My butt!

Oh, man…I’ve just sat through an interminable Zoom meeting. My backside ain’t built for this.

At the start of the meeting, I was invited to try the new AI Companion, which I was told would create a synopsis of the meeting for me.

“Great!” I think, “it can do the minutes!”

It can’t, no. It can tell you things like whether your name was mentioned, which I guess might be useful if you were reading news on your phone the whole time and wanted to know if you’d been assigned a job.

I asked it to catch me up and it gave me a one-paragraph synopsis of a 90-minute meeting – which, to be fair, was surprisingly accurate. But useless.

It sounded like something a gifted middle school student would turn in for a book report.
