The team at GRID Alternatives is seeking assistance evaluating an AI tool called Otter AI. In order to create meeting notes, the tool records entire meetings.  The GRID Alternatives team is now seeking guidance on whether there is anything they need to do in order to manage consent for these recordings (particularly in 2 party states). The Otter AI tool does not request consent from all participants to record, but generally does include a message in the chat stating that the tool is being used.
