On June 1, Automation Anywhere unveiled three new generative AI features within its automation platform:
- Automation Co-Pilot and Generative AI for Automators (will be available in early preview in July)
- Automation Co-Pilot and Generative AI for Business Users (generally available to customers now)
- Document Automation and Generative AI (will be available in the third quarter)
Now, by including generative AI technology on the platform, the vendor said enterprises can expand the number of business processes they can automate.
The first generative AI feature is the Automation Co-Pilot and Generative AI for Automators, which enables automation designers to create automations using generative AI models. In addition, users can use natural language to engage in conversations with the co-pilot.
The Automation Co-Pilot and Generative AI for Business Users helps activate generative AI across any computer application and use it to create and summarize content, send emails, or provide recommendations.
Finally, business users can extract and summarize data from unstructured or structured documents with Generative AI and Document Summarization, according to the vendor.
Automation Anywhere also revealed that the Success Platform now can support any large language model or cloud platform. Furthermore, the vendor said it is working not only with Google Cloud as part of an extended partnership but also with AWS, Microsoft, OpenAI, and Nvidia.
The partnerships with various cloud providers and AI vendors also enables Automation Anywhere to address some security problems enterprises encounter when incorporating generative AI features into their workflows.
For example, AWS, Google, and Microsoft all have ways to secure the data used within the LLM, said Automation Anywhere COO Mike Micucci. Moreover, Automation Anywhere employs a human-in-the-loop concept that aims to make business users comfortable with the output they receive from generative AI, he said.
Overall, Automation Anywhere hopes to help enterprises reduce the cost of building automation and widen the number of applications that can be automated, Micucci said.
