About the event

Intelligent Automation Forum 2019 – Next Gen Technology

Is it possible to go above & beyond? Yes, absolutely.

Pyramid Learning Platforms with its successful run in the APAC region, is coming to Pune; where the Intelligent Automation Forum 2019 will be certainly bigger & better – and in so many new ways.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) continues to gain popularity. By adopting RPA, organisations are integrating rule based processes with software program that do not require much human intervention. These are applied to systems workflow, ERP and databases.

Intelligent Automation (IA) is defined as the next generation in automation technology beyond RPA. Intelligent Automation (IA) engages technologies like machine learning and dynamic workflow and holds the promise of exponential value as it grows, make things simpler. It can integrate everything coming your way from services, new products, technology tools, business models, strategic alliances and ecosystems.

Adding rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) automatically sees more interest in technologies that increase how well machines sense, learn and act.

Investments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) start-ups by venture capitalists have increased multifold over the last few years.

Although, there is growing interest in RPA, there exists lack of clarity on what the technology is, how it can be implemented and where it is going? Somewhere, it hasn’t kept up pace as such both from a delivery and expectation standpoint and remains a moot question.

This conference will be a center of experts’ power joined by leading AI & RPA practitioners across industries, who will come together to discuss:

  • Models enhancing RPA along with cognitive technologies to robotize end-to-end, to drive the cost saving in your automation journey.
  • How to make most of Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Robotic Process Automation technologies and extenuating common implementation pitfalls and how to establish a Centre of Excellence (C0E)
  • Some of the best practices at all levels of maturity across organisations and its impact on top-line growth.

How evolution of Intelligent Automation (IA) includes advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI), to transform the workplace, workforce and human potential.

    Industry 4.0 and IOT edge
    Speaker: Arunkumar Nair, Head – Artificial Intelligence at

    Topic Abstract :- Tools and Technologies that drive Industry 4.0

    Every new challenge also throws up new opportunities. India should adapt and adopt Industry 4.0 to grow the Manufacturing industry.

    To implement Industry 4.0 we need a combination of tools and technologies like:

    • Internet of Things
    • Big Data
    • Artificial Intelligence
    • Additive Manufacturing (3-D printing)
    • Cloud Computing
    • Advanced Robotics
    • Cyber Security
    • Augmented Reality

    In Industry 4.0 computers are connected and communicate with one another to ultimately make decisions without human involvement. A combination of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Systems make Industry 4.0 possible.

    Ultimately, it’s the network of these machines of various sizes and forms that are digitally connected with one another and create and share information that results in the true power of Industry 4.0.

    Edge intelligence

    The Next frontier for Artificial Intelligence is to move Artificial Intelligence from Central Large Computers and Servers to the Smaller Edge Sensorsand machines (Edge Intelligence).

    A key functional benefit of edge intelligence is providing organizations with maximum flexibility for deploying intelligence. This enables organizations to achieve an ideal data management model that can support edge- only intelligence, cloud processing, and cloud-to-edge execution. From a cloud perspective, edge data can be fed to centralized machine learning models for fine tuning. Results can be sent back to the edge devices or edge control systems to modify device performance. This combination provides maximum compute power (where available) while still taking advantage of the benefits of edge execution.

    What is IOT Edge device:

    An edge device is a device which provides an entry point into enterprise or service provider core networks. Examples include routers, routing switches, integrated access devices (IADs), multiplexers, and a variety of metropolitan area network (MAN) and wide area network (WAN) access devices.

    Quantum Machine Learning

    Speaker: Arit Kumar Bishwas, Artificial Intelligence Architect at Whirlpool Corporation.

    Topic Abstract: The recent technological advancements led us to rely on huge volume of data, and on the mining of useful information out of it. Many challenging problems nowadays require effective machine learning techniques. Performing any machine-learning task with huge volumes of data has high computational burden. Machine learning (ML) deals with the development of algorithms that can learn from and make predictions on data. At present, one of the most important challenges in machine learning is how to deal with model training with very large data sets (the so called Big Data).

    In near future, classical computing will probably not serve the purpose due to its limitation with silicon technology. As the complexity burden will increase with the size of the problem space. We need a different technology which can handle this issue to process a huge volume of data in a more faster way. Quantum computer is the answer to overcome this issue. In this talk, we will discuss the field of quantum computing & quantum machine learning, and its recent advancements in the world.

    Future of Robotics & Automation for the next millennium

    Speaker- Abhinav Sabharwal, Principal Consultant, Trainer & Author at School Of RPA

    Topic Abstract – The New millennium is era of the smart cyberspace that is becoming pervasive in its nature while connecting the next generation of ultra-smart Devices. More and more companies are implementing Robotics & Automation, and in 2019, the impact of Robotics & Automation will become broader.

    Within organizations, Robotics & Automation will be used in more ways and across more processes than it is today.

    One new aspect of this is that Robotics & Automation will focus on external, customer-oriented processes in addition to internal processes from this point on. Part of this will happen when Robotics & Automation implementations start to move from pilots and proof of concepts to real production. While many if not most large organizations have tested Robotics & Automation,

    It’s truly proven its usefulness in many situations at this point, so more organizations will take Robotics & Automation to the next level. The area is rich for innovation at this point, and new applications will certainly emerge.
