How to Use the Zoom AI Companion Safely

Zoom AI Companion for Meetings including Meeting Summary, Smart Recording, In-Meeting Questions and AI Companion for Whiteboard are features that have been approved by the Information Security and IT Compliance team for use by faculty, students and staff beginning May 2024. Zoom AI Companion has been enabled to allow meeting hosts to initiate an AI-generated summary of meetings and online discussions.

Zoom’s generative AI assistant empowers individuals by helping them be more productive, connect and collaborate with teammates, and improve their skills. Zoom AI Companion is a set of generative AI features that can be enabled across the Zoom platform. The company's federated approach to generative AI is designed to deliver high quality results by dynamically incorporating Zoom’s artificial intelligence model as well as third-party artificial intelligence models provided by subprocessors, such as OpenAI and Anthropic. With this approach, AI Companion can incorporate innovations in artificial intelligence models while getting the benefits of improved quality and performance.

Zoom has indicated that it does not use any customer audio, video, chat, screen sharing, attachments, or other communications like customer content (such as poll results, whiteboard, and reactions) to train Zoom’s or its third-party artificial intelligence models.

  • Protect the privacy of others.
  • Protect highly confidential or confidential information stored on devices.
  • Protect highly confidential or confidential information from unauthorized physical access.
