During Process Excellence Europe 2017 Guy Kirkwood, Chief Evangelist at UIPath said: "Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not real" and that there is “no such thing as AI".

“AI is a load of b*****s,” Kirkwood said. “There is no such thing as AI. It is a mixture of process tools.”

He told delegates that "the only way organizations will want to use AI is to be able to automate more processes".

Organizations are using AI to replace human labor to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Humans in the workforce will then be free to do high value work.“The value of human capital is greater than you think it is,” Kirkwood said.

Robotic process automation (RPA) will disappear because it will become the standard way to run operational excellence,” he added.

The PEX Network surveyed the financial sector to understand how automation is driving positive change in the market. The survey had actionable feedback from industry leaders, influencers and disruptors.
