Artificial intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are popular buzzwords today, yet the practical applications for and approaches to these concepts are often less understood and (in many cases) may still be on the horizon. However, there is a technology-driven differentiator within this overarching category that has been in use across a number of industries for some time. Machine learning is the means by which a program analyzes a number of data sources and, by using algorithms, “learns” from that analysis to predict likely scenarios or future end-state resul

On the extreme end, there’s SkyNet becoming self-aware and a team of terminators hunting humans down. On the softer end there’s WALL-E, where humans don’t have to lift a finger and grow lazy as robots cater to all their needs. Either way, humans aren’t needed for work.
