AI and RPA—transformative on their own. More powerful together.

Software robots are great at completing routine and repetitive work. But with artificial intelligence (AI), they can do a lot more. They can read documents and emails, analyze language and images, and understand speech. AI helps robots perform cognitive tasks, navigate uncertainty, and resolve inconsistencies. And the more that robots can think and understand on their own, the more they can do. The faster they can do it. And the bigger the impact they can make.

Technology’s new power couple

AI provides a cognitive upgrade for robotic process automation (RPA) robots, so it’s only fair that the robots return the favor. RPA can help you solve the ‘last mile’ challenge of AI deployment, so you get AI into production faster.

Daniel Dines, CEO UiPath

"The potential of automation is vast. We believe the power of AI can make it almost limitless. And so, we've built AI into every part of the UiPath Platform."

The UiPath vision for AI + RPA

For UiPath, AI isn’t an add-on or complementary technology. We believe in the power of AI to transform, so we’ve built AI into every part of the UiPath Platform. AI isn’t an automation disruptor. AI is propelling automation forward, driving it to do more while continuously improving by learning from humans.

AI + RPA: Smarter robots, greater potential

With AI, RPA robots can emulate a wide range of the decisionmaking and problem solving that people do—which expands the range of work that you can automate. AI empowers RPA robots to work with the following: 

Unstructured data

Let a robot work with ‘messy’ data in any form to perform tasks like invoice extraction, e-mail routing, and speech to text.

Variable processes

Put robots to work on processes that can vary based on input and context, including CV/résumé matching, purchase decisions, and language translation.

Predictive outcomes

Use AI-equipped robots to apply machine learning (ML) models to help with property valuation, loan default prediction, and inventory forecasting.

AI-powered industry innovation

Every industry has those tasks where it’s easy to get bogged down with data, verification, and analysis. With the combination of RPA and AI, you can streamline those processes and free your human workforce to focus on tasks where they can have a greater impact.
