The State of Robotic Process Automation and Artificial Intelligence in the Enterprise
In 2014, distinguished Oxford University philosopher, Nick Bostrom, released his book Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies. It hypothesises the potential impact on society if “machine brains” were to surpass that of a human, with the premise being that our destiny would be dependant on machine intelligence, and therefore out of our own hands.
There is, however, a long way to go before we’re at the peril of walking, talking robots in the enterprise – even if Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot, Atlas, was caught running freely into the woods. Currently, RPA is more commonly used in the enterprise.
In this report we will explore how both AI and RPA are affecting companies.
