RPA is a software robot that mimics human actions, whereas AI is the simulation of human intelligence by machines.

Many people often asked about the difference between Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Some even confused the two to be the same.

To make matters worse, many vendors are now brandying about terms like Intelligent Automation (IA) or Intelligence Process Automation (IPA).

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA), led by a diverse panel of industry participants, published the IEEE Guide for Terms and Concepts in Intelligent Process Automation in Jun 2017. The purpose of this standard is to promote clarity and consistency in the use of terminologies in this still nascent industry.

According to IEEE SA, RPA refers to the use of a “preconfigured software instance that uses business rules and predefined activity choreography to complete the autonomous execution of a combination of processes, activities, transactions, and tasks in one or more unrelated software systems to deliver a result or service with human exception management.”

And AI is “the combination of cognitive automation, machine learning (ML), reasoning, hypothesis generation and analysis, natural language processing and intentional algorithm mutation producing insights and analytics at or above human capability.”

For simplicity, you can think of RPA as a software robot that mimics human actions, whereas AI is concerned with the simulation of human intelligence by machines.
