UiPath Launches Autopilot for Businesses to Automate Work

Must read

UiPath, a leading RPA company, has launched Autopilot, a new tool that integrates generative AI, specialized AI, and automation capabilities to make it easy for anyone to automate business tasks using natural language.

Robotic process automation (RPA) company UiPath’s business automation platform is getting a boost with the integration of new generative artificial intelligence (AI), specialized AI, and automation capabilities that, according to the company, will make it simple to automate almost any business task using natural language. 

The company announced the new features at its annual user conference FORWARD VI, where it unveiled its Autopilot tool. The company said that Autopilot would be able to “transform paper documents into business applications within a single click.” In a statement, the company said it will deliver “untapped automation prospects” and guarantee the efficient development of new business automation. 

UiPath, which has been in the RPA space for a long, and its solutions are used by companies to reduce costs and operational errors by automating repetitive work-related tasks, such as data entry. Its platform is powered by AI models that learn how humans perform these tasks. Those models then create software robots that can replicate these workflows, so they no longer need to be done manually. 

With the launch of Autopilot, UiPath said it is integrating generative AI with a library of specialist AI models trained to perform different tasks and making it so simple that everyone can use it.

For example, UiPath said that both professional and citizen developers could use Autopilot to create automation, code, and expressions with natural language. With these capabilities, they can create complex workflows and even build full automation-powered business applications from PDFs and image files. 

“By taking a user’s words, screenshots, or PDFs from paper documents as input, Autopilot for Apps can create a robust automation workflow or interfaces for automation,” said UiPath Chief Product Officer Graham Sheldon. “This enables ‘one-click digital transformation’ for organizations by taking automated action.” 

Meanwhile, Autopilot for UiPath Assistant is an AI companion that will help business users simplify an array of tasks everywhere. Among its capabilities is Clipboard AI, which is a time-saving feature for copying and pasting complex data from one application to another. The AI companion will help users save time to accomplish data-intensive work and other tedious tasks, UiPath said. 

Autopilot for Test Suite will help to accelerate every phase of the automation testing lifecycle, meaning new automation can be pushed into production more quickly. Autopilot for Process Mining will help business analysts create dashboards highlighting new automation opportunities. 

Holger Mueller of Constellation Research said, “UiPath is holistically tackling automation across its value chain, helping business analysts, developers, automation testers, and other users. The most promising aspect of Autopilot is its document-to-app capability, which can help many organizations to achieve a new level of automation.” 

UiPath said its new AI Trust Layer, a management framework for the governance of data and user interactions, will help companies responsibly manage how generative AI is being used across their organizations. 

To be sure, a huge shift is already underway in the realm of software development, marking the inception of a new era driven by gen AI. The rise of code co-pilots like GitHub Copilot, AWS CodeWhisperer, and Google Cloud Duet AI, as well as SAP’s Joule Salesforce’s Einstein, among others, underscore the synergy between human intellect and machine acumen. Experts believe these AI-driven assistants are not just altering how developers code but also improving user productivity and driving better business outcomes.
