Welcome to the February 2019 Newsletter.

More and more organisations are now looking to take their first steps into the world of artificial intelligence – but where to begin? The advice from Amyn Jaffer, Head of Intelligent Automation at Ultima, is to start simple. In his article featured here this month, Amyn explains why RPA (robotic process automation) might prove the perfect jumping-on point for companies. “RPA is the process of using software robots to automate mundane, repetitive tasks. Once these are automated, companies can look at moving to more complex AI-based automation. Using visual and cognitive intelligence, they will be able to deliver more advanced automation that draws information from multiple sources and interprets it to deliver improved business intelligence.”

For Tim Negris, SVP of Marketing and Business Development at Rulex, “The worst way to start a digital transformation journey is by chasing new capabilities - it will almost certainly fail. The best way is by using AI to solve a costly, existing problem. One such problem, as old as computers, and yet largely ignored by the AI cognoscenti, is human data entry errors.” It’s another example of using AI to solve a relatively simple and routine yet costly problem, and could prove a perfect starting point for businesses looking to gain a foothold in the brave new world of AI. Read Tim’s article in this issue for more.
