ARLINGTON, Va. BAE Systems is partnering with robotic process automation (RPA) leader UiPath on a project to develop suites of software robots that users can employ to automate high-volume, repetitive processes, with an eye to integrating them into machine learning (ML) tools for U.S. intelligence and defense services.
Don DeSanto, director of strategic partnerships for the BAE Systems Intelligence & Security sector, said of the project: "RPAs fuel machine learning tools by feeding them high volumes of structured data necessary for it to begin learning and improving automatically, without being programmed. Human-machine teaming is the future of technology, and RPAs serve as workforce multipliers that can be designed to automate many common tasks performed in organizations every day."
According to information from BAE Systems, the tools allow human analysts to shift their attention to managing more critical challenges.; RPAs are capable of searching, sorting, and in some cases, processing large data sets to complete work that currently takes employees hours to complete.
