Artificial intelligence (AI) continues to fascinate, excite, and even intimidate businesses. Generative AI tools like ChatGPT, DALL-E, and Synthesia have demonstrated remarkable abilities to generate human-like text, images, and even videos. And many executives have a directive to find and maximize opportunities for Generative AI systems like GPT-4 within their organizations.
UiPath has always seen AI as an asset and enabler of greater and more sophisticated automation. AI-powered automation frees people from dull, monotonous work so they can focus on achieving their creative and strategic potential. That’s why we were delighted to join and sponsor Ai4 2023, one of the United States' most impactful gatherings of AI leaders, thinkers, and data practitioners, including experts from the United States Coast Guard, United States Air Force, Takeda, and Quest Diagnostics.
On stage, UiPath Head of AI Strategy Ed Challis described the UiPath AI roadmap and strategy. He explained how AI is integral to the UiPath Business Automation Platform, including our longtime investment in AI Computer Vision which enables our robots to see and understand screens like humans can. Now, we are infusing Generative AI across the UiPath Platform, pairing Generative AI with the data, context, governance, and controls it needs to work safely and successfully in the enterprise.
AI without automation is like a brain without a body. The UiPath Platform combines powerful Generative AI with purpose-built Specialized AI models and the power of automation. When Generative AI meets the expertise of specially trained models built on real business data, it empowers automation robots to understand, reason, and create.

Ai4 attendees saw how AI-powered automation enables countless new opportunities for businesses to drive profit growth, cost transformation, force multiply productivity, and enhance the customer experience.
At Ai4 we also announced that Project “Wingman” is coming to private preview this month. Project “Wingman” will lower the learning curve for new automation users, as well as offer a helping hand to experienced automation developers. Project “Wingman” also enables customers to build automations that extend beyond a single ecosystem, creating end-to-end automated workflows that connect disparate business systems. We have always pioneered new methods of building automations, and this preview will allow you to test out and offer feedback on a set of features that uses the power of Generative AI and natural language processing to create API workflows, generate expressions, and help build out your automation. Register today for our Insider Program and find out more about what the future of UiPath Studio holds.
UiPath offers the best of Generative AI and Specialized AI through the UiPath Platform—a platform that’s open, flexible, and enterprise-ready. UiPath Chief Product Officer Graham Sheldon recently spoke about that at the UiPath TOGETHER London event.
During the same event, we announced the general availability of our OpenAI and Azure OpenAI connectors. Attendees saw Clipboard AI, which combines the best of Generative AI and our specialized AI Computer Vision models to easily transfer data between documents, spreadsheets, and apps. And they heard about how we’re enhancing UiPath Document Understanding and Communications Mining capabilities with powerful new GPT-4 integrations.
