Solving Robotic & AI Challenges at Massive Scale Today


During the Cloud First era, the big technology challenges became obvious over time, such as building distributed systems to survive failures and designing distributed databases to ensure data integrity during a network partition. This is what brought amazing engineers to big search engines, à la Google (a terrific investor in UiPath via CapitalG), and to big born-on-the-web companies, i.e., Netflix. These specific tech challenges even became the prominent battle for talent on the HBO hit series, Silicon Valley.

While one traditional tech company recently referred to Robotic Process Automation (RPA) as screen scraping in a post it is far from that. With advancements in machine learning (ML), computer vision, application interfaces, and process orchestration for scheduling at our core already available, these are among the key reasons why UiPath is witnessing simultaneously very fast growth and high customer enthusiasm.

I recently sat down with PD Singh, VP of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at UiPath, to get a feel for the big challenges we are addressing to deliver highly resilient and secure robotic operations and AI at massive scale.

We’re quickly moving toward a time when mission-critical robotic operations will impact every employee, customer and supplier, and all will be working together to deliver extraordinary competitive advantages.

Watch PD’s presentation from <em>UiPath India DevConf 2019 here</em> for a deep dive.

Here are some of the biggest challenges ahead in RPA operations that we’re tackling at UiPath:

These are just a few of the skills that robots will acquire in the long run. As new use cases emerge, new skills will emerge. This is a virtuous cycle.

We are already seeing partners develop business models for industry or domain specialized algorithms that can be deployed via RPA. The same goes for customers who already have the data models, but have struggled to deploy them. RPA is making it easier for customers to drag and drop AI right into their workflows. 

Engineers seeking to solve massive scale challenges—look no further 

Our development centers in Bangalore, Bellevue, and Bucharest are in full swing, hiring some of the most curious and talented engineers seeking to use AI to do amazing things. In the ‘automation first’ era, we will solve (along with our partners) the next generation of incredible tech challenges for distributed, mission-critical robotic operations and machine learning at massive scale, much like Google and Netflix innovated to scale the cloud first era.

BuiltinSeattle just recognized UiPath among the 5 Seattle best tech companies where work matters most. While we concentrate development in these cities, we are a passionate and productive, highly distributed company operating in 31 cities across 19 countries. Madrona Venture Group, based in Seattle, is one of our key investors helping us achieve this amazing accomplishment. . . thank you, S. Somasegar!
