There are some more obvious steps to take to ensure confidentiality.
- Don’t have a window open on your computer that contains any kind of confidential information. There is a risk that you might share it, and your audience has plenty of time to pause a video recording and read it.
- Check your surroundings and make sure there is nothing visible behind you that could give away plans.
- Don’t record or capture anyone’s image without obtaining agreement from all participants first.
How AI might improve conference calling
We all know that the filters on Zoom are our best friend. On a positive note – other new AI is coming that might actually improve the experience of online meetings. Speech recognition will make meetings more accessible for a large number of users. The technology is not just useful for those with hearing difficulties, but a lot of people who are attending a meeting in a second or third language may find it easier to follow the subtitles than to listen. Zoom are also introducing a new ‘highlights’ feature, which will allow users to select key words of interest and view a reel of just those sections. This has the potential to make video recordings a fantastic, searchable resource.
