Artificial intelligence startup Automation Hero unveils AI Studio to democratize AI for next-gen Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an emerging form of business process automation technology that allows anyone today to configure computer software, or a “robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process. However, the traditional RPA technology is limited to basic screen automation – the time-intensive task of manually extracting information from one application, validating it and then pasting it in another application. While successful, this technology is brittle, unscalable and fails to tap into the potential of AI.
To integrate AI, current RPA vendors rely on manual and time-intensive custom coding, which has tradeoffs, such as versioning, governance and deployment. Enter Automation Hero, an intelligent automation startup that combines RPA with AI to form an intelligent automation platform that unites AI with the human workforce. We wrote about AutomationHero back in March when the startup raised $14.5 million to help businesses automate repetitive processes with intelligent process automation.
Today, Automation Hero announced the launched of AI Studio to help address the problems with the traditional RPA technology. This is the first self-service environment to provide a no-code graphical user interface for less technical users for faster and easier access to AI.
Automation Hero’s AI Studio address the traditional RPA technology problem by natively embedding the capabilities of AI into an end-to-end, highly scalable and web-based platform making intelligent automation work for the whole organization. This directly impacts the ability of organizations to take full advantage of adding intelligence to automation for more complex business processes. By automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks, Automation Hero improves productivity and drives more successful, optimized business outcomes.
In addition to address the shortcomings of the traditional RPA, AI Studio also bridges the gap between technology and business. Data scientists are expensive and often in short supply. As a result, there has been a rise of data-centric users demanding faster and easier access to leverage the possibilities of AI for business needs. To satisfy these needs, AI Studio provides a visually rich environment to quickly get up and running with building, training and validating AI models using a point-and-click experience. Users do not require any coding knowledge to take advantage.
“RPA vendors are promising AI but failing to deliver it,” said Stefan Groschupf, founder and CEO of Automation Hero. “We’re on a journey to democratize AI and end-to-end automation. By simplifying the user experience of our full-featured intelligent automation platform we empower our customers to accelerate their automation projects and reduce their reliance on service providers.”
Founded in 2017 by Stefan Groschupf, the San Francisco, California-based Automation Hero combines Robotic Process Automation (RPA) with AI to form an intelligent process automation platform that unites AI with the human workforce. By automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks, Automation Hero improves productivity and drives more successful, optimized business outcomes.
