Forget the hype, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence are both a reality, says event organiser

Robotic process automation and artificial intelligence will drastically transform the modern workplace, according to IQPC, the organiser of the Robotic Process Automation and Artificial Intelligence Summit.

Will you embrace this technological change to make cost reductions, improve performance and enhance real-time decision making? When you think about it, this all adds up to massive competitive advantage, says IQPC. 

Unsurprisingly, with the introduction of these new technologies comes a suite of new challenges – with operations, process owners and IT departments all fighting for budget and ownership, how can companies ensure they select the right technologies to develop the intelligent, automatic processes that will satisfy all parties? And how do they prioritise projects and identify which areas of the business would benefit most from virtual workforce development?

Following an explosion of interest from across the 250,000-strong PEX Network and SSON communities, we are proud to present the RPA and Artificial Intelligence Summit, an unrivalled opportunity for organisations to benchmark their existing and future automation strategies with 200+ of your peers to ensure they get their deployment right first time, and effectively augment human workforce capabilities to drive secure, compliant and value-adding change across both the front and back offices.
