Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is bringing together elements of Robotics and AI to fuel a new vision of automation across numerous industries. RPA is not about industrial robots, but it is about knowledge-based processes and services handled through intelligent software. Some of its most intriguing uses are within the financial services industry.
RPA is growing quickly, but the concept is somewhat flexible and still being refined. AI is a great enabler, but software robots have been performing many of these tasks for some time. Adoption figures are likely to be misleading, since any organization can tick off the “RPA box” with a few simple software agents. RPA represents the beginning of AI /process integration. It is generally understood to be a part of the transition to a more complex AI-centered back office.
In these videos, we review discussions of the current state of RPA, what it entails, and where it is heading. The videos are provided under YouTube license, with discussions provided from their landing pages mildly edited.
