The Evernote app is using AI to automate workflow and is being debuted as the official note-taker of SXSW 2018. The app is designed to facilitate easier collaborations, but also uses AI to deliver better search results and suggest relevant tasks. The interface does seem familiar to Google Inbox, but the inclusion of AI makes it unique and allows users to scan text documents faster and can help assign action items in a simple way.
The artificial intelligence component of the Evernote app is a new and important tool that manages to find a one-size-fits-all solution to work. Humans all perform tasks in different ways and Evernote's AI takes this into consideration when suggesting tasks.
The Evernote app showed a brief demo at SXSW 2018, but the company is already planning an update into something it calls Spaces. With Spaces, users will have access to documents that others created, and will use AI to suggest documents that may be more relevant to the user's work.
