What are automated meeting notes?
Automated meeting notes are immediately generated written notes of what was discussed during a call or a virtual meetings. Those automated meeting minutes are often created by tools that use artificial intelligence (AI) or natural language processing (NLP) to capture all essential details in a meeting without the need for manual note-taking by meeting participants. This saves time and effort and can help to improve your productivity.
What are the benefits of automated note-taking?
Speaking of benefits, automated meeting minutes offer users a variety of advantages.
Below, we listed some of the main advantages that you gain when using automated meeting minutes:

- No need for any manual effort or time investment during or after the meeting
- Automated meeting minutes are accurate and reliable record of what has been discussed
- By using a topic based outline, your automated meeting note is well-structured and ready to share
Not only can you capture important details from meetings quickly and accurately, but automated meeting minutes also help to streamline collaboration between team members by providing everyone with the same information.
Additionally, automated note-taking eliminates the need to manually document meetings and transcribe meetings, freeing up time for more productive tasks.
How did automated meeting minutes change over the years?
The automated meeting notes of today are vastly different from those automated meeting minutes just a few years ago. With the help of AI and NLP, automated meeting summaries have come a long way and are becoming increasingly powerful. Features like automated transcription, voice recognition, keyword tagging, and more used to allow you to capture key insights in meetings without any manual effort or time investment.
However, the times have changed rapidly. The recent release of newest AI models by OpenAI and many other AI open source research labs have made the next level of AI generated notes possible.
Having to read through long transcripts or having to manually indicate what is essential by the click of a button is no longer required. AI can now not only recognize and interpret language, but also automatically categorize and summarize topics. This way, your automated notes are concise and structured into topic sections, allowing for even more coherent note-taking.
