Microsoft Buys Genee, working on AI-developed scheduling solutions

Microsoft has purchased Genee, an AI-powered scheduling tool, for an undisclosed amount. The deal was likely done in cash – unless the company specifically wanted some stock from Microsoft.

The plan is for Genee to shut down its current service September 1st, as it integrates with Microsoft’s Office 365. Genee was founded in order “to simplify the time-consuming task of scheduling (and rescheduling) meetings. It’s especially useful for large groups and for when you don’t have access to someone’s calendar.”

How’s it work?

“Say you want to meet a potential customer, Diana, for coffee. Simply send an email to Diana and copy Genee, like you would a personal assistant. Genee understands that you want to ‘Find a time to meet with Diana for coffee next week’ and will streamline the process by emailing her directly with appropriate options that work with your calendar and preferences.”
