40+ top delegates at the Intelligent Automation Africa 2020

Over 40 leaders and stakeholders in the automation and robotics sector in Africa will assemble in Johannesburg, South Africa between the 17th and 18th June 2020, to discuss on how to restructure the future of work with robots at the Intelligent Automation Africa (IAA) 2020.

Intelligent automation—the combination of artificial intelligence and automation—is starting to change the way business is done in nearly every sector of the economy. It is the latest trending technology in many fields especially in industries like Manufacturing, Automation, Healthcare, Energy, Transport, Defence, Space, Data Mining, Elder Care etc.

Today’s professionals in different organizations are challenged to continuously reduce the cost of operations while also addressing the demands and expectations of increasingly tech-savvy customers. To achieve this, they are turning to intelligent automation to orchestrate and utilize human agents, achieve higher-quality outputs, enhance their customer experience and increase capacity to handle higher business volumes.

The old ways of managing and supporting business processes are undergoing a paradigm shift. The old edifice of back-office support system is being dismantled to make way for the new conception, made possible by the advent of intelligent automation, disruptive technologies and artificial intelligence, which together promise to bring in speed, ease and significant cost optimization.

Now is the time to build a foundation that ensures that IA helps bring better lives in Africa and beyond. With foresight and planning, the technological revolution that IA brings will be a force to empower a fair and prosperous society in Africa. This oft-overlooked continent has much to give and to get from Intelligent Automation.
