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

Topic Abstract

Despite the widespread interest in automating processes with mobile robots it takes 2 years and about $500k just to get the basics of of a mobile robot platform operational - namely mobility, localization, navigation, object awareness, compute and power. This is a major barrier to implementing robot process automation in many domains. This talk will describe how Lean product development methods, including platforming can be used to overcome this barrier and dramatically reduce the time and expense of implementing a robot to automate your process

Topic Abstract

How the robotics industry is being rebooted from dull, dirty, dangerous and dumb robots to smart, social, safe service robots. These changes come as a result of the growth of smartphone development, autonomous automobiles and consumer smart devices. One of the key takeaways is the reduction in cost of robotics and components and more middleware for robot systems.

Topic Abstract

Use of chatbots, voice-Assistants, and recently of Conversational-AI in Robotic Process Automation (RPAs) in now introductory verticals such as customer service are well known, discussed and documented. As the technology matures and simple command based Voice-AI moves up to be Conversational-AI with human like emotions, empathy, and entertainment for engagement new areas and use cases for RPAa open up. In this talk, I will discus the status of the technology with comparison of our Conversational-AI with other major commercial platforms today. I will show an example demo of Conversational-AI with explicit Empathy and Emotional Intelligence as applicable within the context of home-bound elderly and healthcare, automotive and logistics, and hospitality industries' applications.

Topic Abstract

As the digital world continues to shape and consume the physical world, the scope of digital transformation within enterprise keeps expanding. We are in an era of unprecedented opportunity, and much of the growth we will experience over the next decade will be driven by Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning (systems that "Learn"), Conversational Commerce (systems that "Think") and Robotic Process Automation (systems that "do"). The reasons for this are self-explanatory. With more data at our disposal than we have ever known, and more effective technologies allowing us to make sense of it all, we can start to unlock new revenue, significantly improve productivity and build and deliver better customer/employee experiences. In this talk, Shyam will synthesize what this means for enterprises - how these technologies can help accelerate adoption of automation to achieve and augment Digital Transformation goals and objectives.
