Scheduling meetings can be a frustrating back-and-forth of emails and calendar juggling. Skej, a new AI assistant, aims to revolutionize this process with its unique approach that leverages natural language understanding and machine learning.

Unlike traditional scheduling tools like Calendly that require users to share their entire availability, Skej integrates seamlessly into your existing workflow. There’s no need to download additional apps or visit new websites. Simply add Skej’s email address to your email thread, and it gets to work behind the scenes. Skej is compatible with various platforms like Gmail, Outlook, Zoom, and Google Calendar, with more integrations planned for the future.

Skej’s secret weapon lies in its sophisticated AI engine. It goes beyond just analyzing calendars and finding common free slots. Inspired by the efficiency of human assistants, Skej’s AI understands the context of emails and prioritizes meetings accordingly. This means no more blindly proposing times that might conflict with important commitments. Skej can intelligently navigate scheduling complexities and suggest suitable meeting times that work for everyone involved.

Under the hood, Skej utilizes Large Language Models (LLMs) to interpret the nuances of email language. These LLMs can decipher the intent behind emails, identify key details like meeting purpose and urgency, and translate this information into data for scheduling purposes. This allows Skej to not only find suitable time slots but also craft natural-sounding responses when it communicates via email.

Skej understands that one-size-fits-all solutions rarely work well.  The platform allows users to categorize contacts for different calendars (work, personal) and set preferences through a user-friendly dashboard. This way, Skej can tailor its suggestions to your specific needs and schedule.

While Skej currently functions through email, the future holds even greater possibilities. The development team is exploring the potential for voice command integration, allowing users to schedule meetings with even greater ease. Imagine simply saying, “Skej, find a time to meet with John next week,” and the AI assistant taking care of the rest.

Skej is still in its early stages, currently operating in public beta with over 1,000 users. The pre-seed funding round, backed by investors like Betaworks and Mozilla Ventures, fell slightly short of a million dollars. The team, currently remote-based and consisting of five full-time members, is dedicated to continuously improving Skej based on user feedback.

While established players like Calendly offer scheduling convenience, Skej takes a different approach. It prioritizes user privacy by not exposing all available time slots and leverages AI to mimic the efficiency and context-awareness of a human assistant. Skej’s focus on user experience, natural language processing, and seamless integration makes it a compelling solution for busy individuals and teams seeking to eliminate the drudgery of meeting scheduling. As Skej evolves and integrates new features like voice commands, it has the potential to become an indispensable tool for anyone who values their time.
