As part of this evolution, Intelligent Automation has become a topic of interest for business leaders across industries looking to combine cognitive capabilities with robotic process technologies to create a "living" system that can go beyond mundane and repeatable tasks. This is extremely advantageous to any organization that can implement these systems seamlessly but there is still a delta between the ideation of AI integration. and the ability to put these plans into effect. This delta can instill fear and anxiety around using AI as well as the added question of the ethical implications of AI such as Facial Recognition and targeted advertising.
