Cognitive Automation: The Role of AI and RPA Plus Its Advantages

What is Cognitive Automation?

Cognitive automation merges AI and RPA to mimic human actions and thinking, helping businesses make better decisions and learn from experiences. It goes beyond simple task automation, allowing machines to manage complex activities and interpret varied data.

This enhances business processes like data analysis and customer service. In essence, it’s a blend of AI and process automation, streamlining how businesses capture data and automate decisions, making it easier to implement and use AI effectively.

Cognitive Automation with AI and Its Advantages

Some enterprises may still sit on the sideline wondering if Cognitive AI automation or Cognitive RPA is ready to take off at scale for enterprise Service Desks and Customer Service. If you are one of them, then wonder no longer. Cognitive AI Automation is making a big splash in numerous industries, such as insurance healthcare, high technology, financial services, and many others.

Addressing Enterprise Challenges through Cognitive Automation

The reasons for Cognitive AI’s popularity are easy to understand. The lack of automation of repetitive and mundane tasks coupled with the disengaging user experiences delivered by today’s IT Service Desk and Customer Services is hurting Enterprises with substantial inefficiency cost, high cost of errors, support staff headaches, and head-wind resistance to business growth (high customer-churn rate and expensive new customers acquisition process).

RPA’s Role in Enhancing Service Desks and Customer Services

In the past, many enterprises have turned their attention to solely driving business operations efficiency replacing or augmenting their manual IT processes with automation, tapping into Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology. RPA has indeed proved to be highly accurate and effective in taking the burden off enterprises by automatically handling tasks, processes, and workflows that are highly routine, and repetitive.

Enhancing User Experience with Cognitive Automation

Lately, enterprises have realized that Service Desks and Customer Services automation is only as good as its user experience. Employees and customers may not have the patience to create a service desk ticket by filling out a form, wait for the ticket to be properly routed to the right service agent, and for a digitized workflow to then be triggered.

Integrating AI with RPA for Seamless Automation

Employees and customers expect end-to-end automation that can be triggered directly by user inquiries without any human support throughout the process. This requires RPA to be directly accessible by users, and Cognitive AI technology to translate the words of unstructured and complex human language to the well-structured, event-driven machine language used by back-office RPA technology.

Cognitive AI Technology: Bridging the Automation Gap

Cognitive AI technology, like Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Understanding (NLU), Natural Language Generation (NLG), Data Mining, Graph-Theory, etc., is the right technology to fill this void. Cognitive AI has been fully embraced by the most advanced AI Virtual Assistants capable of processing in real-time complex and unstructured sentences typed or spoken by users, extracting intents embedded in those sentences, and translating those intents into simple and well-structured events that machines can easily understand and act upon.

Cognitive AI automation blends the benefits of traditional RPA automation and the intelligence of Cognitive AI delivering RPA automation directly into the hands of end-users. Digitized workflows can be triggered and executed directly from users’ interactions with AI Virtual Assistance agents. User requests like “Need a new laptop” or “I have intermittent connectivity with VPN when logging from home” are processed by Cognitive AI technologies that can trigger and execute back-end digitized workflows.
