Robotics and Automation
Robotics and Automation engages learners in examining the Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) five core technologies. These are the following: robotic process automation (RPA), smart workflow, machine learning/advanced analytics, natural-language generation (NLG) and cognitive agents.
You’ll learn the inner workings of each of these five technologies during the course. RPA is a software automation tool that automates routine tasks. Smart workflow is a process-management software tool that integrates tasks performed by groups of humans and machines. Machine learning/advanced analytics includes algorithms that identify patterns in structured data, such as daily performance data. Natural-language generation (NLG) is a software engine that creates seamless interactions between humans and technology. Cognitive agents are technologies that combine machine learning and natural-language generation to build a completely virtual workforce.
