RPA, Cognitive Technology Innovators to Discuss Automation of Knowledge Work

SAN JOSE, CA – Jul 23, 2015

Automation Anywhere among panelists at KPMG's Executive Symposium on Robotic Innovations

Automation Anywhere, a pacesetting provider of robotic process automation software capable of automating virtually anything, will be joining a number of automation luminaries, thinkers, and providers at KPMG’s Executive Symposium on Robotic Innovations to discuss how disruptive robotic technology is changing the workforce today and in the future.


Panelists at the event, which will be held July 28-29 in Chicago, include economists, research scientists and VPs, futurists, provider CEOs, those involved in outsourcing advisory services, and innovators that engineered technology such as IBM’s Watson. 


Catalyzing the discussion is recent attention in the business world on the automation of knowledge work, and particularly as it pertains to enterprises and their outsourcers. Consulting and advisory entities such as McKinsey have predicted that this type of automation will generate a $5-7 trillion impact across industries worldwide by 2025. The convergence of RPA, cognitive computing, machine learning, and advanced analytics has the potential to be one of the most disruptive changes businesses will encounter now and in the coming decade. KPMG has likened the shift to another industrial revolution.


“In the media lately, we’ve heard speculation about how the world and workforce will be impacted when robotic process automation and cognitive technologies effectively join together,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO of Automation Anywhere. “This symposium is a turning point in my mind, because the people who have engineered these technologies will be in one room, not only sharing ideas, but discussing real possibilities for progressing technology that is capable of carrying out millions of self-directed processes independently. It’s tremendous to think about.”
