The Office of the Future

Virtual Office solutions allow us to work from anywhere, and at any time. Technology to support this agile way of working is evolving every day – from conferencing and project management softwares through to the high tech artificial intelligence virtual assistants. What does the future look like, and will these tech savvy virtual tools ultimately make us more productive, and allow us work harder, better, stronger, faster? Slack Technologies CEO Stewart Butterfield has likened their artificial intelligence software, ‘Slackbot’ to Samantha in the 2013 Spike Jonze film, Her. “There’s a moment when Samantha reveals that she’s talking to thousands of other people, that could happen here,” he told The Australian recently. Butterfield’s Slackbot will be the virtual assistant to everyone one a team simultaneously, while also having access to the company’s institutional, project management and HR knowledge. The aim is to boost company productivity by up to 30 percent.
