Our new Cognirati video blog, created by IRPA founder Frank Casale, delivers a sneak peek into what CXOs are most concerned with when it comes to RPA & Intelligent Automation.

I recently read an article about a twelve-year old boy who scored higher than both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking on the Mensa Test. Immediately, I thought of how many companies are already lining up to hire this bright young mind; possibly even before he ventures on to college.
I went on to think about the importance of knowledge and education as my own daughter recently departed for her freshman year of college. Fortunately, she graduated top of her high school and was accepted to some very select universities.

I’ve spent the last 30 years in the enterprise tech space, which includes hardware, software, services – PCs, Y2K, the internet boom, SAAS, outsourcing, cloud, and big data — wow, what a ride it has been! And like any good ride it’s been exhilarating and has occasionally messed with my equilibrium. All in all, this industry continues to be a very exciting place. This particular time holds even more promise. Never before have I felt that, “things are really about to change,” as I do now with the disruptive wave of intelligent automation, cognitive computing and artificial intelligence.
