Perhaps the only trend more amazing than the rapid pace of technological innovation that we have seen over the past several years is the speed with which we have started taking the latest inventions for granted. When we stop marveling at – for example – virtual assistants such as Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa, and when we start viewing them as a regular part of daily life, it can be easy to lose sight of the incredible possibilities that these technologies create.
But if we combine elements of new technologies in innovative ways, we can create products with even more amazing (and practical) abilities.
I believe that is where the future of RPA lies, and I think we’ll start to see more of it in the coming year. Most importantly, the merging of various technologies into RPA will allow automation to become more accessible than ever before to virtually every employee. That’s why 2019 is the year we will start to see the decentralization of RPA.
