Cognitive RPA

Cognitive RPA

Get to know RPA and artificial intelligence

What you'll learn

During this workshop, we’ll demonstrate the possibilities of combining artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA). Almost any potential business process for robotic process automation requires some form of human intelligence. Intelligent automation (IA) stands for the integration of robotic process automation with cognitive solutions such as natural language processing (NLP), optical character recognition (OCR), chatbots and machine learning.

Who is Brainjar and RoboRana?

Brainjar has a focus on applied artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence, AI in short, is the field of research aimed at automating tasks normally requiring human intelligence. The field of AI is almost as old as computers themselves and has been constantly pushing the boundary of what is possible in the field of automation. With the rise of deep learning, the field of AI is going through a development boom, revolutionising fields like computer vision (CV) and natural language understanding (NLU). AI is becoming exceedingly crucial in making sense of the exponentially increasing amount of unstructured data being generated.

RoboRana has a team of over 20 people working with RPA. Robotic process automation, also referred to as RPA, is the automation of repetitive, high volume and manual processes with software robots that mimic human actions and connect multiple systems without changing the existing IT landscape. RPA is a business friendly solution that allows a rapid value check and can boost the efficiency of administrative tasks across the organisation.
