Zoom recently introduced an artificial intelligence-powered assistant, Zoom AI Companion, as a component of several platform features used widely at MIT.

The AI Companion is available for MIT users to choose to activate for its Meeting Summary, AI Companion Questions, Smart Recording, and Whiteboard Content Generation features.

  • Meeting Summary enables hosts to generate and send meeting summaries for participants.
  • Questions enables hosts and invited participants to ask questions to the AI Companion during a meeting, which are then answered based on the conversation transcript.
  • Smart Recording enables highlights, summaries, smart chapters, and next steps to be added to Zoom cloud recordings.
  • Whiteboard Content Generation enables creation of content for stickies, tables, and mind maps in Zoom whiteboards.

Note that Zoom does not use any audio, video, chat, screen sharing, attachments or other communications-like content (such as poll results, whiteboards, and reactions) to train Zoom’s or third-party AI models.

To turn these features on or off for your account, sign in to and visit the AI Companion tab on the Settings page.
