We are continuing to collaborate with campus stakeholders to assess Zoom AI Companion and its roll out.

Original announcement:

Zoom recently announced the release of Zoom AI Companion, a smart AI assistant, and its availability for the higher education community with a business associate agreement (BAA). 

We are collaborating with the Office of Cybersecurity and Office of Compliance to review this feature before rolling it out to campus. 

If this feature is approved for UW-Madison Zoom users, the release date may be scheduled for the end of November, or early December 2023.

Please note, that Zoom released the Zoom AI Companion tab for all users, which is located in the account settings. Within the tab are settings that will be grayed out until the feature has been vetted. Thank you for your patience. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email .
