Asana AI Principles

Additionally, Asana has codified a set of artificial Intelligence principles that guide its research and development efforts.

As a company we are committed to using AI in service of helping humanity thrive. This includes ensuring AI safety and transparency in practice and in product. Achieving this vision for the application of AI requires meaningful co-creation between Asana, our customers, and our partners.

Asana’s Five Guiding Principles for human-centered AI

  1. AI should help people achieve their goals: We focus on helping individuals and teams achieve their goals and helping organizations deliver on their mission faster. AI should be used in service of augmenting, supporting, and celebrating people’s contributions like never before. Humans should always set the destination; AI is a tool to help them get there.
  2. We design for human + AI teams: AI has joined the team. We see enormous potential for AI to help teams to work together more effectively and efficiently. We will prioritize our efforts towards fostering the right workflows and partnerships between people and AI—catalyzing human-AI teamwork and ultimately empowering people.
  3. People are accountable for decisions: With Asana, AI will assist and enhance human decision-making. However, we believe accountability rests with people and will design our product accordingly. We also believe in providing people with choice and control over the role of AI in their work.
  4. We are committed to safety—in the short and long run: We believe AI will be transformative for humanity and for our mission, but we will balance speed with responsibility. In the near term, we will prioritize safety and security with AI providers. And we'll take the same approach while developing AI solutions. In the long run, we are motivated to ensure AI remains aligned with human values and objectives in Asana.
  5. We promote transparency, in practice and in product: We commit to being open and clear about our partnerships, security, data collection, data protection, and management practices. Transparency is also fundamental to our product ethos. We will build solutions that lead AI and humans alike to unpack their thinking and assumptions in order to strengthen our collective thought processes, foster trust, and build on each other’s ideas.

The AI Companion is now included at no extra cost for users with paid Zoom accounts, reinforcing Zoom's commitment to facilitating human connection and boosting productivity. The company has also rebranded its conversational intelligence software, Zoom IQ for Sales, as Zoom Revenue Accelerator. Zoom's generative AI capabilities, introduced in June, have already benefited numerous companies through free trials of Team Chat Compose and Meeting Summary. In the coming months, Zoom will expand its generative AI offering with the launch of AI Companion, available at no additional cost to paid Zoom user accounts. Zoom's approach to AI is federated, combining its own large language models with third-party models such as Meta Llama 2, OpenAI, and Anthropic. This approach ensures high-quality results and cost-effectiveness. AI Companion will be integrated into various aspects of the Zoom platform, including meetings, team chat, phone, email, and whiteboard, with additional features in development. Zoom aims to deliver tangible benefits to users and disrupt the industry's pricing model.

AI Companion streamlines collaboration and productivity by automating tasks and removing distractions. It offers real-time AI capabilities, such as faster meeting recording access, chat message drafting, and chat thread summarization. In the future, it will provide real-time feedback on meeting participation and coaching on communication skills.

SmartBear Launches Integrated API Developer Suite, Adding Portal and Exploration to SwaggerHub Platform

Businesswire | August 04, 2023

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and visibility tools, released SwaggerHub Portal, SwaggerHub’s new feature to customize consumer-facing documentation that drives the adoption of APIs. The developer-centric tool allows API providers to create customizable landing pages, providing consumers with comprehensive resources for easy implementation. Portal is integrated with SwaggerHub, the popular API design and documentation tool, and Explore, the API client that supports REST and event-driven specifications, allowing teams of any size to explore, design, test, and document all in one place for a better developer experience. “SmartBear is focused on API-first development, helping developers to solve their challenges when it comes to design, documentation, testing, and adoption,” said Sean Butler, Vice President of Product Management at SmartBear. “With a growing number of APIs available, providers need help with discoverability and onboarding. To address this challenge, we are excited to launch these two innovative milestones – SwaggerHub Portal and its integration with SwaggerHub Explore – as we advance toward the SmartBear API Developer Lifecycle platform to deliver the best developer experiences in the industry.” According to Slashdata, more than 90% of developers use APIs regularly with 69% using third-party APIs, though discoverability is critical for consumers to successfully implement APIs into their projects. SwaggerHub Portal provides increased visibility and adoption and allows providers to seamlessly onboard their consumers for an improved customer experience. SwaggerHub's integration with Portal allows developers to generate documentation from their API designs with zero context switching. This minimizes time to market, making their APIs easy to discover and adopt. Development teams, whether code-first, design-first, or hybrid, can generate documentation from Explore, no longer needing to start from scratch when documenting. A senior tech and developer experience lead at Webio stated, “SwaggerHub Portal’s capabilities are promising to be a game changer for our onboarding process and developer experience. The use of the product concept to describe different parts of our system, combined with seamless integration with other SwaggerHub products, means that developers have a one-stop shop to get all the latest API information alongside visually appealing up-to-date documentation.” About SmartBear SmartBear provides a portfolio of trusted tools that give software development teams around the world visibility into end-to-end quality through test management and automation, API development lifecycle, and application stability, ensuring each software release is better than the last.
