The worst thing about a business meeting is trying to stay awake throughout the process. Bosses usually don’t notice when employees are getting bored and fainting, but geekwire has discovered a Microsoft patent, a new patent called insight computer system, which monitors meetings and scores them based on attendance, room temperature, body language, facial expressions, and time. The Microsoft patent found by geekwire uses software tools, sensors and cameras to assess conference productivity and efficiency. Microsoft believes that this can be used to determine the contribution of participants to the meeting and the extent to which they perform other tasks (such as texting, checking email, browsing the Internet). The data collected by the system can be used by management to decide whether a meeting is successful or not, highlighting potential problem areas that should be changed: location, who is invited, when, etc. < / P > < p > the management can use the data collected by the system to judge whether the meeting is successful or not, and what needs to be further improved in the future, such as meeting place, invited object, meeting holding time and so on. Microsoft said in the Patent Description that many meetings are too long, the attendance rate is not high, and they are held repeatedly. If you can get the details of the meeting quality, you can improve the meeting or cancel some unnecessary meetings. < p > < p > Microsoft’s patent is applicable to face-to-face meetings and virtual meetings and can be analyzed, so even those who work from home are monitored by Microsoft’s patent. Geekwire pointed out that when Microsoft launched the & quot; productivity rating & quot; feature in October, it was criticized for enabling similar workplace monitoring features. Cracked labs, an independent digital Research Institute in Vienna, Austria, believes that it allows managers to view the number and time of employees sending e-mails, using chat tools, and using “mention” in e-mails, turning Microsoft 365 into a mature workplace monitoring tool. Microsoft denies this, insisting that the & quot; productivity rating & quot; feature does not monitor employees. Global Tech
