Q: I’m keen to know more about the Document Processing Framework, especially around PDF files.
Q: Is Computer Vision able to track handwritten text present in a document? Or does this still require Abby Flexicapture?
A: UiPath Computer Vision focuses on reading UI (User Interface) elements on the screen with AI techniques. We have several Cognitive services integrated with the UiPath Platform, including Microsoft Azure Computer Vision and Google Cloud Vision, which can recognize handwritten text.
Q: Is Computer Vision recording related to the recent package which has the privacy statement that screenshots may be sent to UiPath?
A: Yes. There are, however, two deployment modes for this feature. If you access it through our Cloud, the screenshots are sent to UiPath. But you can also deploy the model on-premises or in your own Cloud. In that case, nothing gets sent to UiPath.
Q: Does your AI Computer Vision require a license? Is Computer Vision available in the community version? The community edition currently sends images to the UiPath server. Will a robot do that after the release of the enterprise version?
A: Computer Vision is available in two ways today. First, there is a Cloud-based option available for free to our community and enterprise users. This is the default method configured in the activity. Second, the model is available for on-premises use by enterprise customers. In the case of the Cloud option, images are sent to the UiPath Cloud for processing, but UiPath does not retain any of the processed images. For the on-premises option, images are not sent to UiPath at all.
Q: With the Computer Vision activities, can you anchor to a variable string? I have a grid of text boxes with various row/column headers and would rather use a simple loop to go through the anchors to find the text box I need to enter data into.
A: Yes, you can do that.
Q: What is the maximum duration for Orchestrator Execution Snapshot recordings before an unattended robot encounters an error?
A: Two minutes.
Q: Is there any capability for the integration with ServiceNow API in which we must pass credentials?
A: We are actively exploring the integration with ServiceNow and will have more to share in the future.
Q: Regarding monitoring: is that information available via an API query? Is there any historical data available?
A: The information to query the data available in monitoring is not available via API. Monitoring data happens over 24 hours. For longer durations in monitoring, you can ingest the logs via elastic-search to compute utilization/uptimes.
Q: Can I create a Global Variable in my Main.xaml and access it via sub-workflows without using Arguments?
A: Global variables are usually considered a bad practice and are not supported.
Q: How is UiPath related to RPA and classic Artificial Intelligence areas (as i.e. neural networks, rules-based systems, expert systems, knowledge-based systems and so on)?
A: Here’s our own vision for AI.
Q: How can I get involved in the Fast Track 2019 program?
A: The 2019 Fast Track is released and available for download. If you wish to participate in future platform testing, you can join the insider program.
