Ways to convince Your Boss Ways to Save
Overview

RPA, Cognitive & AI 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 October 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 Wall Street Journal recently published an article that perfectly summed up the state of the RPA market: growing faster than anyone expected, but ultimately void of "magic." RPA has provided a much needed band-aid for aging, disparate enterprise technology stacks, but few companies have scaled beyond "a few bots" and even fewer have found rules-based process automation to be the transformation agent it was promised to be. While the first wave is more hype than impact, the second wave of process automation, powered by AI, is already turning analog operations into agile businesses that can compete and win against digital natives. In this presentation, you will learn:

What "AI" means and delivers in the context of RPA
Why the unified platform approach is superior to integrating point tools
How enterprise businesses have used AI-driven automation to better serve customers, reduce cost and improve operational transparency

Topic Abstract

Even Financial's ML-based real time pricing platform is expanding to leverage RPA in the delivery of segment-based financial product content. RPA is the perfect strategy for designing and inside-out operations that can deliver user-value-driven recommendations in a long-tail marketplace. Consumer financial instruments are surrounded by a moat of practices for regulatory compliance and ethics when marketing. This burden is shared alike by financial institutions, online media publisher networks, as well as agencies and service platforms. While human-trained compliance automation is a well-practiced space, financial product content and recommendations has yet to realize the benefits of RPA.

Topic Abstract

The exhaustion of traditional means to lower costs and the pressure on companies to seek additional value creation has led to the rapid ascent of RPA technologies in the business world. The incremental cost savings over traditional offshore delivery, improved service delivery in the form of process quality, speed, and governance are just some of the reasons why the business case for RPA is becoming harder to ignore.

This talk will initially explore commercial automation technologies being deployed across Fortune 500 companies today, and provide insight into a rich landscape of exciting Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technologies.

Topic Abstract

I will share some insight on our personal experience in the last 4 years. End of 2014 we started implementing Chatbots also with the purpose to connect with users in developing countries like the schools in Afghanistan.

Here an example of a Chatbot created to educate students on Financial Literacy: https://www.querlo.com/chat/5170 With conversational AI we were able to increase our time per session from 2 and 1/2 minutes to over 14 minutes per session! Based on this experience and success we decided to roll out this technology and provide our services to clients.

We started utilizing various IBM Watson API's , particularly those used to measure sentiment and emotion, and this lead us to call our company : www.Querlo.com, artificial intelligence with a

Our mission is to provide custom AI conversational solution giving empathy and human behaviors to our AI solutions, mastering the user of images and videos to further engage users and using IBM Watson and Microsoft Azure to measure sentiment and emotion, use NLU and NLP to consolidate this human behavior, look and feel.

Topic Abstract

The application of Quantum Computing (QC) to mankind's biggest challenges will leave classical computers biting the dust. Calculations that would take longer than a human's life span to work out on a classic computer will be completed in a matter of days or hours with QC; for optimization, sampling or search problems, this promises dramatic speedups. The expansion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the areas of data capture, pattern recognition and decision support will address current deployment challenges, and expand the reach and range of traditional RPA solutions. As QC turbocharges AI, RPA is set to further benefit in its path to revolutionize the business models of the future.

Topic Abstract

Given the ridiculous amounts of data that humans and devices are creating, we have to be grateful for the concurrent advances being made in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Humans have been designing devices and technologies for literally centuries dating back to the first analog computer - the Antikythera Mechanism – created 2,500 years ago and found in 1901 off the coast of a Greek island. Since then we have witnessed Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine in 1822, Deep Blue and IBM Watson and AlphaGo which beat the world’s Go champion last year.

When Henry Ford began producing Model Ts in 1910 in Detroit, a whole new ecosystem grew up around the car - motels and restaurants near highways, roadside attractions, garages to repair them and restaurants to feed the drivers and passengers. The same kind of ecosystem is emerging to support AI.

A range of companies offer tools and libraries. There are vendors with specific capabilities, organizations that will scrub, clean and tag your data, unicorns with very niche solutions and many public and private curated databases that can be used for building and testing models.

I will share both a socio-historical perspective on AI as well as insight into this emerging AI ecosystem. The focus is on how can business owners can get started using AI to generate attributable revenue and improve productivity.
