Enhanced, Not Replaced

How bluecap™ Strives to Use AI to Augment A User’s Ability Not Replace Them The rapid advancement of technology has always created instability in society and the job market. History is littered with professions that have completely disappeared, so being apprehensive about new technologies is not an unwarranted response. Many new AI technologies will inevitably reduce or eliminate positions in our society. Historical Reference Consider the plight of the lamplighter. A profession 500 years old at the time of its decline. The lamplighter would be responsible for lighting the thousands of candles or, later, gas lamps that would illuminate the various communal spaces of a city. This was commonplace throughout the world until the advent of electric lighting following Thomas…

Make Meetings Actionable

Imagine having an assistant trained to understand your meeting context, priorities, extract key takeaways, transform and distribute them across your workflows. The meeting is a staple of modern society. No matter what line of work you’re in you’ve probably had a meeting with someone. Compatriots, overlords, underlings, clients, etc - all excellent candidates for meetings. Most of these people don’t want to be there. Let’s unpack this a bit. How can we exchange ideas and collaborate effectively without meetings? Well, we can’t. There are no ancient rituals to beam information directly into each other’s minds and there is no technology we can simply plug into. I admit, I may have been watching South Park and the new Matrix trailer prior…

Be Thankful for What Matters Most

In uncertain times what should we really be thankful for? The question requires a deeper examination of our goals and how we achieve them. Define What’s Important; Elevate it with Technology Historians are going to have an incredibly hard time summarizing the last few years. We’ve seen great uncertainty in health, increasing demands on the working class, and a re-evaluation of things we’ve taken as fact. Many in the working class are examining what’s actually important to them. Is it success, is it family, is it enjoying life, or is it everything in moderation? It’s a stressful question in uncertain times - what is important? It’s a question with no universal answer. The importance of work and success could be…

Don’t Trust; Verify

A Historical Analogy and Context for Why bluecap™ Relies on A Zero Trust Approach to Cybersecurity The internet has been a boon for the average person. Unlimited access to information, the ability to communicate and share instantaneously across the globe, and a literal world of opportunities for work. It has also been a golden age of opportunities for business. The same open access the public now relies on allows business to reach more people than ever. The problem starts when we examine the nefarious side of human nature. No matter how beneficial or secure of a system you put in place, there’s a group out there that will inevitably exploit it for all it’s worth. The most valuable commodity in…

Get To Know Your Audience

Empathy - the ability to relate to and understand another person’s emotions is the basis of strong relationships Knowing your audience is one of the most important skills any upstart entrepreneur or comedian needs to have a firm grasp on. Come to think of it, I feel like everyone should know their audience. Many times a friendly reminder to “read the room” can be a massive embarrassment for your inner verbal daredevil and have some serious implications. In a growing world of possibility and diversity, we need to choose our words and how we convey concepts carefully. It’s not even about self preservation at this point, it’s about getting your point across effectively and impactfully. What’s the point of saying…

Introducing bluecap™

Over the last two years, online meeting software has advanced in leaps and bounds out of necessity, starting with the rapid scaling of existing services. Many of these advancements have been made possible due to Artificial Intelligence.

By utilizing powerful modern language models, GPT 3, Dialogflow, deep learning and more, we have created what amounts to a real world meeting assistant.
