Ways to convince Your Boss Ways to Save

Robotic process automation (RPA) technology is the next frontier for businesses looking to streamline processes, increase productivity and ultimately improve the bottom-line.

RPA typically uses artificial intelligence to handle repetitive, rules-based, back-office tasks. And the market is about to experience a period of "explosive" growth.

The RPA market grew 64 percent to $200 million last year and is expected to grow 70 to 90 percent by 2018 because successful pilot projects are inspiring buyer confidence in the technology, the consulting and research firm reports.

However, there are some barriers to adoption, such as IT departments concerned about data security and loss of control. Plus, replacing staff with robots in some sectors, such as government, could become a political minefield.

Join us at RPA Summit in April to hear from subject matter experts currently evaluating RPA for their businesses in areas such as Finance, Procurement, HR, Outsourcing, Automation, etc.

Topic Abstract

The Fourth Industrial revolution (industry 4.0) signifying the era of automation is fast approaching. Manufacturing, agriculture, transport and many more sectors are already being transformed by recent advances in automation technology. It is predicted that by 2025 more than 25 billion smart objects would be integrated into our homes and workplaces. At the same time, advanced Artificial Intelligence (A.I) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms need to be developed to make sense of the data gathered from these smart objects. Undoubtedly, we live in the age of disruptive innovation, where the generation of bright ideas is flourishing. However, amidst all the excitement, there is a sense of uncertainty on how best to protect the underline Intellectual Property (IP) to gain a competitive advantage in the era of automation. More specifically, there is much confusion surrounding the IP protection of software-based innovations, which forms an integral part of the industry 4.0 ecosystem. In this presentation, we will explain the current IP protection framework for software-based innovations, which will include a discussion on handling Trade Secrets, offer guidance on the development of a strong IP portfolio, and provide advice on how to leverage the IP generated to help your business succeed.
