Application: Artificial intelligence layer-based process extraction for robotic process automation (Patent ID: US20240104381A1)

The patent filed by UiPath Inc. describes a computer-implemented method for AI-based process extraction for robotic process automation (RPA). The method involves running data through AI models to identify RPA processes that exceed a confidence threshold and generating RPA workflows based on the identified processes. The AI models may include various layers such as sequence extraction, clustering detection, visual component detection, text recognition, and audio-to-text translation, which work collectively to suggest RPA workflows. Additionally, the method includes generating automations for RPA robots to implement the generated workflows and replacing existing RPA processes with more optimal ones identified through the AI models.

Furthermore, the patent also covers the use of non-transitory computer-readable media storing computer programs that run data through AI models to identify RPA processes exceeding a confidence threshold and generate corresponding RPA workflows. The programs may also facilitate the generation of automations for executing the workflows and replacing less optimal existing RPA processes with the identified ones. The patent emphasizes the use of a combination of AI models, run either in series, parallel, or a combination of both, to effectively process data and improve RPA processes. Overall, the invention aims to enhance RPA efficiency by leveraging AI-based process extraction to identify, suggest, and automate workflows for improved business processes.
