Power Automate is Bringing the Next Wave of AI Innovation to RPA

Introducing to you the most relevant to RPA & IA field announcements at Build 2024, Microsoft‘s annual flagship event for developers, which is going these days:

The first one is about how the company is bringing generative AI to Power Automate, its process and workflow automation platform.

Starting soon, you will be able to take any repetitive desktop workflow and not just record it with Power Automate Desktop but also narrate what you are doing to Power Automate’s AI Recorder. Through this, the service can then combine voice and a screen capture to create more resilient workflow automation. One nifty aspect of this is that those automations are less likely to break when there are small changes to the user interface!

In a demo of this announcement, Sangya Singh, Microsoft’s VP of Power Platform, described Recorder as a way to “disrupt how [RPA] is done.”

PowerAutomate is also getting a new feature called AI flows, which are now available as part of an early access program. With AI flows, users describe the kind of workflow they want to create in natural language — augmented with additional parameters and source documents — and the generative AI system then creates the actual Power Automate flow.
