Intelligent Automation: Synergies between Robotic Process Automation & AI

The "intelligent automation journey" framework describes four main generations of robots that companies are implementing, their characteristics and associated benefits. It is more logical to deploy the robot generations in a sequential order, starting from generation one to four (e.g., implementing traditional RPA before implementing the next ones). In doing so, companies will be able to avoid experiencing the “empty shell effect.” Above all, to create a maximum of value out of this journey, effective interactions between the generations of robots need to be implemented. New generations are not meant to replace existing ones, but instead, they are to work hand-in-hand. We have identified that these interactions create synergies, where each generation will add value beyond its single intended benefit.

Big Data in Smart Cities - Making the Invisible Visible

The idea of a Smart City is a not a new one. Early attempts at creating a centrally-managed, connected urban center date back a couple decades. Yet, the meaning and scale and complexity of Smart Cities have radically changed since the idea first took flight, not least because disruptive technologies have enabled brand new applications. At the core of every modern metropolis now sits a central question: what data can be generated across large urban areas, and how can it be harnessed to realize the dream of a truly Smart City? Brice Richard, lead Digital Planner for ARUP Singapore, will explore these questions.
