Pinna, an artificial intelligence application startup, announced the launch of a new application for transcribing video conference meetings called Transcribe.AI. The application eliminates the need to take notes during meetings by automatically transcribing the conference and storing the log on your computer.

Transcribe.AI will work with Zoom, WebEx, GoToMeeting,, RingCentral and other popular video conferencing platforms. Since it stores information on your computer and not the cloud, the transcribed information is secure. Users can also use Transcribe.AI offline.

"If you're like most people, writing and listening at the same time doesn't come naturally. As much as we like to think otherwise, the brain doesn't multitask well when asked to focus on two tasks simultaneously. We've all experienced this obstacle first-hand, missing out on important information in our attempt to capture each concept on paper. However, we all still scramble to take down notes during important lectures, meetings, and discussions. Using Transcribe.AI, you never miss a word," said Josias Orlando, Director of Engineering for Pinna.

This release comes at a good time for Pinna, as companies worldwide are leaning heavily on video conferencing technology to get work done remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic. The ability to transcribe meetings effortlessly without having to switch platforms will save significant time and energy.

"Paying attention to every word in a meeting is sometimes difficult. converts speech to text in real-time as you speak, so you can always be on top of the conversation. This is useful as now you can focus on listening and not making notes," said Tobias Englund, Country Manager USA and Canada Cyber Security, "As a cybersecurity company, I like their OFFLINE mode so that no data leaves the computer. The last thing you want is your calls data stored in the cloud."

The remote work environment makes security an even greater priority, and companies like Zoom have been adding to user security in recent weeks. Transcribe.AI’s attention to this aspect of their product should only help it establish itself as a valuable video conferencing tool.
