The Ask AI interview with Roy Pereira, CEO of Zoom.AI


Special thanks to Microsoft Canada and Cinchy for sponsoring the third series of the Ask AI podcast and supporting greater awareness of artificial intelligence in Canada. All of our episodes and 100s of AI profiles are also available from our chatbot, generously sponsored by Toronto’s Ada Support.

Roy Pereira is the CEO and founder of Zoom.Ai, the Toronto-based maker of “chat first” virtual assistants for enterprise companies. Founded in 2016, Zoom.ai seeks to minimize the workplace distractions that limit productivity.


The Zoom.ai mission is to give everyone in a company their own automated assistant so that they can focus on their higher-value job duties.


Their chatbot can handle tasks such as meeting scheduling, meeting preparedness, introductions to people you want to meet, and travel logistics.
