Pascal Bornet
Pascal is a recognized global expert and pioneer in the field of intelligent automation. He is industry thought leader with over 200k online followers and specializes in Artificial Intelligence, Automation & Analytics. Formerly Head of AI, Automation & Digital Innovation for McKinsey, Pascal is a senior advisor to IRPA AI, member of the Forbes Technology Council & author of Intelligent Automation: Welcome to the World of Hyperautomation.

In this article, Pascal presents a framework for explaining Intelligent automation (IA)’s power in terms of four main capabilities — vision, execution, language and thinking and learning — and how they can enable business transformations with people and business goals at the center.

By leveraging algorithms and unorthodox data sources, an MIT researcher has made Valencia a Covid-19 data pioneer.

Automated-hiring systems are excluding many people from job discussions at a time when additional employees are desperately needed.

AI holds great promise to increase the quality and reduce the cost of health care in developed and developing countries. But one obstacle to using it is patients don’t trust it. One key reason is they perceive medical AI to be a black box and they think they know more about physicians’ decision-making process than they actually do, the authors research found. A remedy: Provide patients with an explanation of how both types of care providers make decisions.

Given that artificial intelligence is increasingly overtaking people on a range of expert tasks, will it someday make human managers obsolete? Luckily, there’s one cognitive ability where people still have a big edge: reframing.

While robotic process automation (RPA) was a major turning point in digital transformation, AI-driven automation is proving to be the better choice for higher performance, low latency and autonomous decision-making.
