Robotics Process Automation & Artificial Intelligence Take London by Storm!

The event taking place in London, from 14th - 16th November is set to bring together those furthest along the maturity curve in automated and intelligent service innovation with those who are just starting out, for a frank and open discussion surrounding the best ways to compete in the digital business era.

IQPC's two power houses of information - SSONetwork (www.ssonetwork.com) and PEXNetwork (www.processexcellencenetwork.com) announced the dates for their inaugural RPA & Artificial Intelligence Summit.


The event taking place in London, from 14th - 16th November is set to bring together those furthest along the maturity curve in automated and intelligent service innovation with those who are just starting out, for a frank and open discussion surrounding the best ways to compete in the digital business era.

The agenda includes a compelling mix of workshops, case studies and the choice of 3 steams surrounding human workforce augmentation across the front and back-offices as well as over 15 hours of interactive sessions and networking. The event is launching at a pivotal time, as the terms Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are making the move from futuristic concept to workplace reality. Moreover, with the industry predicting further advances within the next 3-5 years including; configurable RPA technology with cognitive capabilities, leading to cost reductions, improved performance and enhanced real-time decision making, this agenda has all topics covered to ensure attendees have the competitive advantage within what is being described as the 'Fourth Industrial Revolution'.

In preparation for this new event, the SSON and PEX Network are also inviting Shared Services, GBS, Outsourcing, Transformation, Process and Operational Excellence leaders to take part in their industry survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DLHVD36). The aim being to gather insights on budget, where the biggest potentials and challenges lie as well as the general trends which will be used to create an industry report in preparation of the event. The RPA & Artificial Intelligence Summit will be taking place in London, UK from 14th - 16th November 2016 (http://www.rpaandaisummit.com). Copies of the event agenda are fully downloadable from the event website here, at no cost. A copy can also be requested via email at events@ssonetwork.com

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
