In addition to the productivity score, a new technology patent shows that Microsoft plans to add another indicator to its employees, thus turning multiple employees from people into a productivity unit. In this patent, the “Meeting Insight Computing System” is described, which uses camera, sensor, software tools and post conference investigation to create “Quality Score” for the conference. < / P > < p > the camera will record information such as body language, facial expressions and the number of people in the room, and report on “participants’ contribution to the meeting” and other tasks (such as sending text messages, checking e-mail, browsing the web, etc.). And then, for example, “computing” and other information will be used to generate insights for the next meeting. < / P > < p > the patent statement states that “many organizations have problems with meeting time being too long and attendance rate is not high. If more information about the quality of meetings can be obtained, these meetings can be modified and / or avoided”. The system will be suitable for face-to-face and virtual meetings. It’s not clear whether Microsoft will launch the system, but given that Microsoft has already released their personal productivity score, it seems likely.
