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

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
