Software Robots Execute Machine Learning

Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being programmed. It develops computer programs that can teach themselves to advance and change when exposed to new data.

Software robots, on the other hand, are more deterministic in nature. Designed to execute administrative processes, enterprises train the robots against a set of rules so that they carry out the prescribed procedures the same way every time.

These software robots are perfect for key processes like payroll. Delegating payroll processes to AI could mean that employees receive salary increases or decreases at a robot's whim. With software robots, however, controlled by human "bosses," processes are executed under the appropriate supervision and can be carefully monitored.

With all the buzz around robots these days, most people envision R2D2 or Rosie from "The Jetsons" when they think about the machines. What many fail to realize, however, is that robots can come in both hardware and software forms, and the latter – while less discussed – are well positioned to completely disrupt the way we work.

For insight into these software 'bots and how they will impact our lives, David Moss, founder and CTO, Blue Prism, and his team have compiled a list of some of the top myths and misconceptions associated with the technology. Read ahead to debunk some of the common misconceptions you might have about software robots and better understand how these next-generation machines will streamline operations in your business in the very near future.
