Zoom has introduced its own AI-inundated offerings, which are intended to help you keep up to date with business information within the videoconferencing app.

The first feature of the new service, called Zoom IQ will assist you with summarizing Zoom meeting conversations that took place in your absence. You can access these summaries through the Zoom Team Chat or email without having to initiate any kind of recording. Hosts of the meeting also receive an overall summary for sharing with the group, or for record keeping.

The second feature allows you to use AI to generate messages within Zoom. It helps you develop your tone, grammar, and overall appropriate speech for communicating in an online business setting.

Zoom IQ is essentially the brand’s version of AI business offerings that have already been introduced by competitors such as features integrated into Microsoft Teams and Google Meet,

The brand noted that its service is a blend of its own proprietary LLMs and language models such as those from companies like OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT.

In addition to the two introductory features, Zoom IQ will eventually have five additional features coming soon, including a generative tool for emails, chat thread summaries, and whiteboard prompts and development. Zoom is also planning even more features for the coming months.

The first two features are now being launched as a free trial with Zoom IQ, but the brand has not shared any further pricing information.

The service will be available through Zoom One packages for Enterprise Plus, Enterprise, Business Plus, Business, and Pro plans, as well as various legacy bundles, including Enterprise Named Host, Enterprise Active Host, Zoom Meetings Enterprise, Zoom Meetings Business, and Zoom Meetings Pro.

Zoom hinted in early November 2022 at its plans to introduce and expand new productivity features to compete with Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, such as Team Chat, Whiteboard, and Meetings options among others. Zoom IQ looks like the first step in that process, as it races to catch up with AI tools of its own.

These days, it seems like everyone and their dog is working artificial intelligence (AI) into their tech products, from ChatGPT in your web browser to click-and-drag image editing. The latest example is Adobe Photoshop, but this isn’t just another cookie-cutter quick fix -- no, it could have a profound effect on imagery and image creators.

Photoshop’s newest feature is called Generative Fill, and it lets you use text prompts to automatically adjust areas of an image you are working on. This might let you add new features, adjust existing elements, or remove unwanted sections of the picture by typing your request into the app.

OpenAI’s new Shap-E tool is Dall-E for 3D objects

OpenAI's latest endeavor, Shap-E, is a model that allows you to generate 3D objects from text, not unlike how Dall-E can create 2D images.

According to OpenAI, Shap-E is "a conditional generative model for 3D assets. Unlike recent work on 3D generative models which produce a single output representation, Shap-E directly generates the parameters of implicit functions that can be rendered as both textured meshes and neural radiance fields."
