  • Publication number: 20230342430
    Abstract: A computerized task automation system operates to permit automation of processes comprising one or more computer implemented tasks. Software robots may be created and retrieved to automate human user interaction with computer systems. The software robots each take one of three forms: (i) an attended software robot that is encoded to interact with one or more application programs and to accept one or more inputs from the user as required by the one or more application programs, (ii) an unattended software robot that is encoded to automatically interact with one or more application programs without any user input; and (iii) a cognitive software robot that is encoded to automatically interact with one or more application programs without any user input and is further encoded to automatically alter its interactions with the one or more application programs by way of a machine learning engine.

  • Patent number: 11775814
    Abstract: Controls within images of a user interface of a computer application are detected by way of region-based R-FCN and Faster R-CNN engines. Datasets comprising images containing application control, wherein the application controls include images of application where width is greater than height, width is equal to height and height is greater than width are retrieved. Each of the datasets is processed with the R-FCN and Faster R-CNN engines to generate a software configured to recognize, from an input image, application controls wherein the application controls are characterized by dimensions where width is greater than height, where width is substantially equal to height, and where height is greater than width.

  • Patent number: 11775339
    Abstract: Computerized robotic process automation (RPA) methods and systems that increase the flexibility and lower the cost with which RPA systems may be deployed are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, an RPA system and method avoids the need for preinstalled RPA software on a device employed by a user to create and/or execute software robots to perform RPA. In another embodiment, an RPA system and method provides a capability to execute software robots that may have been encoded in one or more programming languages to execute on an operating system different than that employed by a server of the RPA system.

  • Patent number: 11748073
    Abstract: A robotic process automation system employs centralized compilation to generate a platform independent executable version of a bot, which is encoded to perform user level operations. The system employs an extensible set of commands which can be user generated. The bots execute on devices that are separate and independent from a server processor that controls the system. The devices execute bots in an execution environment that is provided by the server processor. Change in a command in a bot requires recompilation of the bot which is then delivered upon request to a device. The execution environment does not require recompilation upon a change in a command.

  • Patent number: 11681517
    Abstract: A server responds to a request to perform a first automation task to process a work item from the plurality of work items, on a first computing device that is separate and independent from the server. The server receives a request from the first computing device to download the first automation task and queries a distribution information file to identify one or more other computing devices that have a copy of the first automation task. The server provides to the first computing device, an identifier for each of one or more other computing devices that has a copy of the first automation task. If the distribution information file does not contain an identification of any other device that has a copy of the first automation task, then the server processor causes the first automation task to be retrieved and to be provided to the first computing device.

  • Publication number: 20230082185
    Abstract: A robotic process automation (RPA) system provides bots that interact with and provide user credentials to applications, such as for multi-factor authentication (MFA). First user credentials associated with MFA are retrieved by the bots from credential storage. Second user credentials that correspond to questions posed to a user of an application are retrieved from credential storage. Second user credentials that correspond to a one-time password are generated by the RPA system. The second user credentials may also be generated by a third-party authentication service that provides the credentials via a secondary channel such as email or SMS, which are then retrieved for presentation to the application.

  • Publication number: 20230072084
    Abstract: Task automation is enabled by recording, over a period of time, inputs of a computing device user to generate a log of inputs by the user in connection with one or more task applications. The user inputs are stored along with information pertaining to the one or more task applications. The log is processed to identify the one or more task applications to generate a user task file. The log is further processed to identify the fields in the task applications with which the user entered inputs and the identified fields are stored to the task file. The task file is processed to identify one or more tasks performed by the user. An automated software robot which is encoded with instructions to perform automatically, when invoked, one or more of the tasks performed by the user may be automatically generated.

  • Patent number: 11354164
    Abstract: A computerized method for processing a set of robotic process automation (RPA) tasks receives service level requirement inputs that specify a first set of RPA tasks to be performed within a specified period of time. A response to the service level requirement inputs is computed to determine a number of computing resources required to perform the first set of RPA tasks in the specified period of time. Availability of computing resources from a set of computing resources is determined to generate an allocated set of computing resources. The allocated set of computing resources are deployed. A subset of the first set of RPA tasks is queued for each computing resource and each computing resource is monitored and redeployed as it completes tasks in its queue. Quality of Service (QOS) is achieved by prioritizing certain tasks above others.

  • Publication number: 20220019195
    Abstract: Robotic process automation (RPA) systems with improved user access enable a user to interact with an RPA system by way of a communication platform. The communication platform can support text messaging and/or speech communication with a virtual agent that in turn is able to interface with an RPA system. In this way, a user of the communication platform is able to conveniently interact with the RPA system, such as in a conversational manner. By analyzing and interpreting the conversation, the user's intent or desire can be determined and then carried out by the RPA system. Thereafter, results from the RPA system can be formatted and returned to the user. In one embodiment, to better understand the user's intent or desire from the text messages or natural language communications (i.e., voice or speech communications), artificial intelligence can be used.

  • Publication number: 20210389971
    Abstract: A robotic process automation system includes a server processor that performs an automation task to process a work item, by initiating a java virtual machine on a second device. A first user session that employs credentials of a first user for managing execution of the automation task is also initiated on the second device. The server processor loads into the java virtual machine, with a platform class loader, one or more modules, such as logging and security, that perform functions common to the sets of task processing instructions. A first class loader a first set of task processing instructions is also loaded. Then each instruction in the first set of task processing instructions is loaded with a separate class loader. The server processor causes execution, under control of the first user session, on the second device, the task processing instructions that correspond to the work item.
