At its annual Imagine user conference, Automation Anywhere joined the growing number of intelligent automation technology providers that are adding generative AI capability to their platforms. The company said it is basing several new AI, security and governance features on a “Responsible AI Layer” developed on top of leading Large Language Models.

“The combination of generative AI and intelligent automation represents the most transformational technology shift of our generation,” said Mihir Shukla, Automation Anywhere’s co-founder and CEO. “Every company, every team, every individual will be able to re-imagine their system of work and automate the processes that hold them back.”

The San Jose, Calif.-based intelligent automation provider first added generative AI to its platform last summer but expanded it with this announcement. The company said it has added generative AI to its Automation Co-Pilot for Business Users and Document Automation solutions.

In an IT spending forecast in July, global IT consultancy Gartner predicted generative AI’s full impact would begin to be realized as it was integrated into existing software solutions. Automation Anywhere’s Austin announcement is the most recent realization of this prediction.
