Microsoft 365 launches enterprise event hosting service with facial recognition



Microsoft has announced at its Inspire conference that it is launching a new live event hosting application with automatic facial recognition and speech-to-text transcription to make it easy to review a certain portion of the event, VentureBeat reports.

The capability is part of Microsoft 365, a suite of services including Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility and Security. The new live event feature enables employees to skim videos by participant, rather than just timestamps and keywords. Other features include a page for exchanging questions and comments, and integration with Teams, Yammer, Stream, and Office 365. Transcriptions can be used to automatically assign tasks, or analyze the language used in the event to judge company culture.

Other news from the event includes the launch of a free version of Teams, and the launch of a productivity tool called MyAnalytics.

The live events capability is expected to reach availability in the coming weeks.

At its Build conference earlier this year, Microsoft unveiled a prototype of a device which provides facial and voice recognition for use in meetings.
