How does the Chat Assistant collect and learn about meetings?

The Chat Assistant uses advanced algorithms to analyze your meeting transcripts stored in MeetGeek. It learns from the context and content of your discussions to provide relevant and personalized insights.

Currently, it learns information from your last meetings (meetings that were recorded by your notetaker), using a sliding window of your last 20 meetings. This means that once you record a new meeting with MeetGeek, the oldest one from the list will be left out. You can also control which meetings to learn or forget by using slash commands (see below).
​

Using Slash Commands

You can use slash commands to start new chats with fresh context, send private messages, or ask the assistant to learn a particular meeting. Type /mg help to display the list of available commands.

/mg help: Display available commands.
/mg dm {private/public} {message}: Message the assistant and receive the reply in private (default is public)
/mg new {chat}: Starts a fresh new chat.
/mg learn {meeting URL}: Learns a new meeting and may forget the oldest meeting in the list if there are more than 20 meetings in the memory.
/mg forget {meeting URL}: Forgets a meeting.

Tips for optimizing your use of the Chat Assistant

  • Be specific: Clearly state your requests to get the most accurate responses

"Can you provide a summary of the main topics and action items from yesterday's all-hands meeting?"

  • Use keywords: Mention specific topics or keywords from your meetings for targeted insights

"Could you highlight all discussions related to the 'Q3 Marketing Strategy' from our last three meetings, including any action items mentioned?"

  • Feedback loop: Provide feedback on the Chat Assistant's responses to help it learn and improve

"The summary you provided for the 'Q3 Marketing Strategy' discussion was helpful, but it missed some key action items mentioned. It would be great if future summaries included a more comprehensive list of action items."

  • Regular updates: Keep your meeting data up to date in MeetGeek for the most relevant insights
