How Remote Teams Can Leverage AI?

The rise of remote teams in today’s business landscape has made technology an important tool for companies looking to stay competitive. Artificial intelligence (AI), pioneered by the likes of DeepMind and, is one technology that can help remote teams improve their efficiency, productivity, and overall performance. In this blog post, we will explore how remote teams can leverage AI to improve their operations.

#1 Automating repetitive tasks
Remote teams rely on digital tools to communicate and collaborate, which can create a significant amount of moving parts that need to be managed and organized. By leveraging AI-based tools, remote teams can automate repetitive tasks such as data entry, file management, summarising notes, and email sorting, freeing up time for more important tasks.

#2 Improving communication and collaboration
Natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML) can be used to analyze and understand large amounts of data and extract insights that can improve communication and collaboration. For example, NLP can be used to automatically summarize meeting notes or transcribe audio recordings, making it easier for team members to stay informed and up-to-date.

#3 Enhancing productivity
AI-based tools can also be used to enhance the productivity of remote teams. For example, AI-based tools such as ChatGPT can help team members generate quality content, conduct instant research, manage their to-do lists, emails, and other tasks, freeing up time for more important work.

#4 Streamlining remote-team operation
Some AI-based tools are specifically built for remote teams, they can help remote teams to optimize their work, enhance the sense of cohesion among team members and get a holistic view of the team performance. This can include things like virtual team management platforms, collaboration tools, and employee engagement metrics. For example, Microsoft Premium offers a feature called ‘Intelligent recap’, which automatically generates meeting notes, summaries and tasks from a meeting, without the person creating any of these manually.

#5 Enhancing decision-making
Remote teams often rely on data to make informed decisions, however the amount of data can be overwhelming and often difficult to digest. By leveraging AI-based tools like the Aible extension for Tableau, which creates a seamless BI + AI experience, enabling users to build predictive AI models directly within Tableau in minutes.

Remote teams can leverage AI in a number of ways to improve their efficiency, productivity, and overall performance. And it’s only the beginning. With the rise of OpenAI and other AI tools, companies can really double-down on gaining a competitive edge to outcompete others and create leverage across their existing resources.
