Intelligent Automation: Boosting Business Efficiency and Making our World More Human

The Industrial Revolutions started over 200 years ago, automating “blue-collars” work in the agricultural and industrial industries. They provided massive and structural benefits to our society, such as the reduction of famine, the increase in standards of living, and they relieved people from laborious manual work.

Officially coined in 2017 by IEEE, Intelligent Automation (IA) ushers in a new revolution: the one of office work, automating “white-collars” work. Today, office work accounts for more than 80% of the job roles in our global economy, such as lawyers, financial controllers, or call center operators.
IA, also called Hyperautomation, is a cutting-edge combination of methods and technologies, involving people, organizations, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, robotic process automation (RPA), and more.
The main questions we will answer during this presentation are:
✓ What is Intelligent Automation (IA)? Why has the use of IA been expanding so rapidly? What are the benefits it unleashes for people, companies, customers, and society?
✓ How can IA increase the resilience of our health and economic systems to safeguard people’s lives and livelihood even in times of pandemics or crises?
✓ How have leading organizations been able to harness the full potential of IA, at scale, and generate massive efficiency gains in the range of 20 to 60%?
✓ How can IA save 10+ million lives per year, triple our global budget for education, eliminate hunger, or help protect our planet?
