Intelligent Automation: New Book a First to Introduce “Hyperautomation” Spawning Fourth Industrial Revolution

Two centuries ago, the Industrial Revolution began to automate blue-collar work, allowing production, distribution and buying to increase efficiency on a booming scale. Unsurprisingly, profits and wider societal improvements followed.

Today, Artificial Intelligence has the ability to automate white-collar work, in a shift many are calling the “fourth industrial revolution”. Industry experts Pascal Bornet, Ian Barkin and Jochen Wirtz are at the helm of this Hyperautomation. In their new book, the team lays out what the future might look like.

Synopsis of ‘Intelligent Automation: Learn how to harness Artificial Intelligence to boost business & make our world more human’:

This is the first book on Intelligent Automation (IA). Also called Hyperautomation, it is one of the most recent trends in the broad field of artificial intelligence. IA is a cutting-edge combination of methods and technologies, involving people, organizations, machine learning, low-code platforms, robotic process automation (RPA), and more.

This book is for everyone – whether you are an experienced practitioner, new to the topic, or simply interested in what the future holds for enterprises, work, life, and society as a whole.

Key content of the book:

. What is Intelligent Automation (IA)? Why has the use of IA been expanding so rapidly? What are the benefits it unleashes for employees, companies, customers, and society?

. How have leading organizations been able to harness the full potential of IA, at scale, and generate massive efficiency gains in the range of 20 to 60%?

. How can IA save 10+ million lives per year, triple our global budget for education, eliminate hunger, help protect our planet, or increase the resilience of society to pandemics and crises?

What you will get from this book:

. Get the lessons learned from 100+ IA transformation successes (and failures)

. Benefit from the largest publicly available library of 500+ IA use cases by industry and by business function

. Gain access to insights garnered from 200+ IA industry experts

“We want to instil a hope in people of the promise AI holds for a better world,” explains Bornet, a global thought leader in the industry. “It may be a recent technology, but it has rapidly taken precedence in application, R&D and potential. More than 80% of all work globally is office-based, and AI now holds the future keys to better performance, enjoyment and results in the office work arena – not to mention the wider positive impacts for society.”

Continuing, “In this book we take readers through the technologies leveraged by AI in a way anyone can understand. In everything from chatbots and data analytics to machine learning, biometrics and video/image analysis – we take readers on a journey with this technology and showcase how it’s going to change everything about our lives in the future.”

Reviews have been extremely positive. Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, author of NYT Bestseller “AI Superpowers” writes, “An insightful exploration of Intelligent Automation”.

Arianna Huffington adds, “An essential reading for anybody who cares about the future of work”.

Further endorsements have been received from the likes of Dr Luc Julia (creator of Apple Siri) and Klaus Schwab (Founder and President of the World Economic Forum).
