About this talk

Understanding what automation actually is and is not, is the right place to start when trying to figure out how and where it might be useful. Although touted as the latest new technology, now infused with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and about to ‘change everything’, automation is just the process of taking a manual task and getting a machine to do it. From the spinning jenny to the microchip, technology has supplied us with the ability to remove risk, increase safety and move from subsistence-based living to a level of comfort previous generations could only dream about. Today, operational data is the lifeblood of an organization, enabling the best companies to stay two steps ahead of the competition and drive the market. Combined with automated machinery and processes, information flies across the business to enable entire new processes and standards, constantly raising the bar. The potential for automation and AI to vastly shift how businesses and organizations operate and thrive is being realized as we speak. Technology is on the cusp of helping us to solve some of the biggest challenges that we are facing today, including climate change, labor shortages, and resource depletion. Join us as Sarah Burnett, esteemed analyst and author of The Autonomous Enterprise, spends some time with our own Rob Hughes to dive into the future of automation and what leading companies are already doing. In this webinar, you will learn: - What automation is and why it’s important - What AI is and how it works as a catalyst to jumpstart efficiency - What the future could look like in decades to come due to AI-infused automation
