Generic AI for Interactive Experiences is Introduced by Mentimeter

Published

on

Mentimeter, the top engagement platform globally, is pleased to present its most recent generative AI-powered features. Users may now quickly and easily create draft interactive presentations, or “Mentis,” with the introduction of the “AI Menti Builder,” by following easy suggestions. This feature helps users be more productive and efficient by allowing them to quickly transform ideas, agendas, and outlines into live polls, quizzes, and conversation starters.

The most recent development in the engagement platform is the AI Menti Builder. With only a prompt, Mentimeter customers may now create designed drafts that are suited to their unique requirements and goals by utilizing the power of generative AI. Based on Mentimeter’s knowledge base of best practices for conducting meetings and classes, the AI interprets the intent and creates a custom presentation. No matter what kind of session they want to host—workshop, quiz, seminar, poll, retrospective, or anything else—users have access to an editable Menti in a matter of seconds, complete with the relevant topic.

Mentimeter has been acknowledged for a long time as the preferred platform for engagement, utilized by most of the top colleges in the world, 95% of Fortune 500 firms, and others to make typical lectures, meetings, and presentations fascinating. Through interactive polls, comments, and reactions, Mentimeter transforms inactive audiences into active contributors, whether they are running in-person or virtual meetings or seminars.

“Customers tell us that they frequently don’t have enough time to upgrade typical one-way presentations into interactive learning experiences. Rather than starting from zero when developing slides, users may now ask the AI Menti Builder to create the interactive questions, and they will promptly receive a Menti draft that they can edit. In addition to saving time, this new feature helps users concentrate on providing meaningful material and successfully interacting with their audience, enabling them to attend and conduct meetings and classes more skillfully, according to Mentimeter co-founder Niklas Ingvar.”

Representing Mentimeter’s dedication to enabling users to become the best facilitators, teachers, and leaders they can be, the AI Menti Builder builds on top of Open AI’s technology and combines Mentimeter’s expertise in facilitation best practices. It is available as a free feature to all Mentimeter users.

A major improvement to QX Lab AI’s current generative AI platform, Ask QX, Ask QX PRO was published today. To increase the platform’s usefulness and attractiveness, the latest version adds multimodal features to its text-based functionality.

With over 15 million users since its early inception this year, 4 million of them are said to be regular users of Ask QX. Its goal, according to QX Lab AI, is to showcase generative AI’s potential for both private and commercial use.

These days, Ask QX PRO is equipped with functions like document analysis, text-to-image and image-to-text production, and even text-to-code conversion with code editing capabilities. These additions, according to the business, offer “universal value and reliability for different practical uses.”

Because the platform uses a foundational model, “it uses its own datasets for training and an API to function.” This puts QX Lab AI in the limited club of businesses creating these types of foundational AI models, along with OpenAI and Google’s Gemini.

Ask QX PRO provides customized architecture with technologies such as the Dynamic Integration and Synthesis Matrix (DISM) and the Advanced Multimodal Synthesis System (AMSS) for corporate users. These are made to manage intricate data analysis and integration for a range of industrial uses.

Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) and co-founder of QX Lab AI Arjun Prasad stated, “The incredible response to Ask QX is demonstrated by the launch of our multimodal platform. For a digital company such as ours, we see Europe as a market, particularly considering the multitude of computer-savvy Europeans eager to adopt Generative AI for both personal and professional applications. We understand how crucial strategic alliances are to expanding our platform and reaching users all over the continent. Our goal in using this strategy is to duplicate Ask QX’s success in the most isolated regions of the continent. Ask QX PRO is poised to become a vital resource for consumers across the region, thanks to its emphasis on regional requirements and preferences.”

Ask QX PRO is a multilingual tool designed to help people of different languages have greater access to generative AI. A premium model is anticipated to emerge in mid-June, while a free version is now accessible.

QX Lab AI emphasises its commitment to data privacy and security, stating that user data will be stored locally and handled in compliance with UK and EU regulations. The Android version of Ask QX PRO is available now, with an iOS release anticipated soon.
