BIP – Robotic Process Automation in Industry 4.0
After mechanization in 1790’s (first industrial revolution), mass production in 1900’s (second industrial revolution) and automated production in 1970’s (third industrial revolution), in the next five years we will see the rise of cyber-physical systems, the fourth industrial revolution. As part of the Industry 4.0, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) will radically change both backend and frontend enterprises infrastructures and processes leading to significant cost reduction, production increase and higher customer satisfaction. Hardware and software robots will be designed to augment human workflow making it more efficient and effective. Core enabler of the whole fourth industry revolution will be analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence based on big data and IoT, all ready technologies now-a-days. After discussing some recent Bip’s case studies on machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies, the speech will focus RPA opportunities in Industry 4.0.
