Robotic Process Automation at Researchers’ Breakfast
November 10, 2015 @ 08:15 - 10:00
Warm welcome to ASF researchers’ breakfast on Robotic Process Automation (RPA) on Tuesday 10.11.2015 at 8.30-10.00. The seminar will be held in Aalto University School of Business main building (Runeberginkatu 14-16). The breakfast is served in the Proffa Restaurant at 8.15 and the seminar starts at 8.30.
Rapid developments in software, hardware and networking, is revolutionizing the way we live and work. We are witnessing a great societal change, where digitalization is entering all areas of work, previously reserved exclusively to humans. RPA is the manifestation of this change, enabling us to automate labor-intensive business processes with ease. RPA is defined as the application of technology that allows employees in a company to configure computer software or a “robot” to capture and interpret existing applications for processing a transaction, manipulating data, triggering responses and communicating with other digital systems (Institute for Robotic Process Automation).
The objective of the seminar is – by form of discussion – to develop a research agenda for RPA. The seminar is organized in collaboration with Aalto Service Factory and OpusCapita. Petri Karjalainen from OpusCapita will give an introduction to RPA, which will be followed by a review of RPA research by Aleksandre Asatiani and Esko Penttinen from Aalto University.
Please sign up here for the event. The seminar is free of charge.
