UiPath builds connector to access AI models from Amazon Bedrock

UiPath has announced that it has built a new Integration Service Connector for Amazon Bedrock. This allows customers to enrich their automation efforts with generative AI.

The connector allows users to implement generative AI directly into automation tasks in UiPath Studio and Studio Web. Several foundation models are available, such as Amazon Titan FMs, AILabs’ Jurassic-2 LLM offering or Anthropic’s Claude. With these options, customers can explore AI augmentation of automated tasks such as text processing. Jurassic-2 specifically supports the ability to generate text in Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian and Dutch in addition to English-language content. Foundation models contain a huge amount of parameters and, thanks to a diverse data set, are trained to be helpful for all kinds of tasks. They can be beneficial for the automation of things such as predictive analytics, classifying text, anomaly detection and assessing the tone of a message.

“The UiPath connector for Amazon Bedrock is simple to use and brings the power of foundation models to all UiPath customers so they can accelerate building their own Generative AI applications,” said Graham Sheldon, Chief Product Officer at UiPath. “With its open, flexible, and responsible approach, UiPath provides organizations with a comprehensive platform for implementing and harnessing the power of AI-powered automation. This functionality complements our vision for helping customers innovate faster with Generative AI.”

To ensure that organizations know their data is safe, UiPath stores all of it within the customer’s Virtual Private Cloud and encrypts all data.

Place within the offering

We have previously looked in detail at the UiPath Platform, which can be attractive to many different organizations. In fact, UiPath defines automation very broadly. It once focused on RPA (Robotic Process Automation), where a bot could take over repetitive tasks in order for a company to divert employee time to more complex tasks. Meanwhile, UiPath does all sorts of things that tend to fit under the heading of Business Automation. For example, it can recognize that a customer asks for a change of address in an email and UiPath can automatically parse this information so an employee doesn’t need to read the entire message to understand it. However, you can also turn to it to quickly onboard new employees and familiarize them with existing workflows.
