A robot virtual project manager

In Canine coach keeps dieters on a leash, NewScientist - September 2005, we hear how the robot will gather information about our eating habits and exercise routines by connecting wirelessly to a pedometer. Actually virtual robot project managers, wizards and assistants may not be that far away - as a very simple example check-out The Meeting Facilitator.

The Meeting Facilitator provides a software avatar, Tara, who can help keep your meetings following their agreed agendas, recording their actions to the agreement of all participants as they go along and running to time.

There is no rocket science in The Meeting Facilitator and it is clearly a new and evolving product in development terms.

However my experience is that it's actually the simple things like poor agenda and time management which destroy many meetings in our organisations today.

So at just £5 per meeting The Meeting Facilitator might be money well spent.
