Spot uses AI to record inappropriate interactions at work while keeping reporters anonymous

There are undoubtedly numerous incidences of workplace harassment that go unreported, and one reason for this is that reporting them does not always yield results. Realizing the problems with current reporting policies, former Evernote employees Dylan Mariott and Daniel Nicolae teamed up with scientist Dr. Julia Shaw to create Spot, a chatbot that uses AI and memory science so that victims can report workplace discrimination incidents in an anonymous manner.

Instead of talking to a human, reporting to this bot may be a more reliable way to record important information while the incident is still fresh. AI allows it to respond to a user’s responses and ask relevant follow-up questions. It also does not pass any judgement but is available to “talk” anytime. After the end of the report, the user can also receive a time-stamped report to keep as evidence or even have it anonymously emailed to an employer through Spot’s email address.
