We woke up this morning to some very exciting news

Fast Company recognized Clockwise on its annual Next Big Things in Tech list! These awards highlight new technology breakthroughs that Fast Company has deemed will help to define the future of a wide range of industries, from healthcare and security to artificial intelligence and data.

More specifically, Clockwise was named one of four next big technologies in workplace and productivity for 2023, for letting people avoid scheduling headaches through AI conversations.

Here’s what Fast Company has to say

Clockwise‘s AI lets busy people schedule meetings by expressing their availability and preferences conversationally rather than through laborious back-and-forth emails or complex forms. Based on OpenAI’s GPT-4, the AI lets users give commands like “Clear my schedule for tomorrow” or “Find a time to meet on Monday.” The AI, which also includes a handy integration with Slack, can access multiple people’s calendars within a company and understand factors like the urgency and priority of different meetings and events. Clockwise customers include Etsy, Zoom, Atlassian, and Uber. 

This year, 119 technologies developed by established companies, startups, or research teams are highlighted for their cutting-edge advancements and potential to impact consumers, businesses, and society overall. While not all the technological developments are available in the market yet, each one is reaching key milestones to have a proven impact in the next five years.

“The Next Big Things in Tech is not just a look around the corner — it's a look around the corner after that,” says Brendan Vaughan, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “These are the products and ideas that will define technological innovation for the rest of this decade and beyond—and solve some of the world's most pressing issues. We are thrilled to honor the organizations that are making them a reality.”
