Do you love meetings? Neither do I.
I realized it was time to leave my last job when I noticed I was spending an average of six hours a day in meetings, many of which I had been asked to attend strictly on an FYI basis.
Read.ai has raised $10 million toward the goal of better understanding what doesn’t work about meetings so the people who run them can do it better.
Its software analyzes basic metrics such as start and end times, attendance, and time spent on different topics. It then folds in machine learning-derived observations from audio and video recordings that indicate engagement levels as measured by factors like participation, tone of voice, and visual expressions.
