This week, we put the finishing touches on planning next week’s Product Team retreat to San Diego.

Most of Parabol’s team retreats have emphasized strategic planning or simply enjoying each other’s company. Next week’s Product Team retreat, however, will shift focus to exploring Parabol’s potential for applying AI technology to extract team insights.

For the past several months, members of our development team have been hard at work architecting, developing, and deploying infrastructure capable of generating AI insights at scale from Parabol’s data. While we could (and should!) write an in-depth article discussing the architectural choices we’ve made, for now, we’ll provide a snapshot of the pipeline we’ve developed and our plans for its application.
