SICSA research project - Intelligent Minutes

Dr Mike Lincoln, a Research Fellow from the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, is working on a revolutionary technology that could change the way we hold business meetings.

Multiparty Interaction Capture Analysis and Replay (MICAR) uses a 360-degree panoramic camera, microphone array and slide-capture device to create an audio-visual recording of everything that happens in a meeting. State-of-the-art speech recognition and language-processing technology is then used to transcribe and index the recordings, allowing them
to be searched and replayed using a web-based ‘meeting browser.’

According to Lincoln, using the technology “preserves and unlocks the information lost with traditional meeting minutes, and allows important review tasks such as decision audit, operational review and regulatory compliance checking to be performed quickly and accurately.” Lincoln also describes it as “a potential must-have for all businesses, particularly organisations whose decisions are made with high accountability and scrutiny, such as the military and security services.”
