gridspace Gridspace Memo: never again write up meeting notes by hand

Nix notes at meetings and elsewhere

Attending meetings can be tedious and tiresome, but in most cases mandatory. This is only made worse if you are the person given the daunting task of taking the meeting notes. In a technology-driven world, there has to be a better way to keep a record of the meeting. Gridspace is offering one solution.

Gridspace is an application and/or device that automatically saves and indexes meeting conversations. The recording device, the Memo M1, acts as an enhanced audio recorder. But, it is different from traditional recorders because it can save, search, and share meetings like emails in your inbox. You can search for a word or person in any meeting by using cutting-edge machine learning to detect what is said and who is saying it.

This allows the rest of your attendees to remain focused on and participating in the meeting, rather than worry about recording every detail. The software automatically interprets meetings and creates a special online Memo document. Meeting participants and other collaborators can access highlights or details as well as an attendee list, which makes networking after an event much easier.
