Joining us for episode 19 of The Robot Brains Podcast is Boris Krumrey, Global VP of Automation Solutions at UI Path. We have all heard of physical robots, autonomous machines that help humans with tasks in the real world, but what about "software robots"? Digital helpers who can be built, trained and used to help increasingly digital workforces with their computer based tasks - from HR teams onboarding new hires to updating spreadsheets or presentation slides. UIPath is a market leader in this new and exciting field of "robotics", in particular “Robotic Process Automation” - or RPA. At UiPath, Boris leads the charge on the development of their RPA and UiPath’s ambition to “give every person a robot”. He has helped to bring UiPath “software robots” to companies all over the globe, including: Google, AutoDesk, General Electric, DHL, PwC, among others. UiPath recently IPO’ed (in April 2021) and it was one of the largest IPOs in history, with a 35.8BB market cap at close on its first trading day. In our conversation, Boris describes the new field of RPA and software robotics, as well as describing his vision for the future of AI-enhanced digital work. | SUBSCRIBE TO THE ROBOT BRAINS PODCAST TODAY | Visit therobotbrains.ai
