UiPath, a US-based robotic process automation (RPA) software company, has tied up with Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK), a skill development organisation promoted by the Telangana government, to help “build RPA resiliency” in more than 30,000 students in the State over the next one year.

UiPath will initially offer the programme to over 50 academic partners of TASK and train over 100 educators on RPA design and development solutions.

“The academic partners can also incorporate RPA as part of regular university credits or offer it as a value-add programme,” said a TASK spokesperson.

Quoting a Zinnov research study, TASK said some top enterprises in the country spent about $60 million on hyper intelligent automation last year. This is expected to grow to $350-400 million by 2024, indicating a huge potential for automation skills.

UiPath and TASK will run joint bot-building sessions to help key decision makers, heads of departments, teaching and non-teaching community tap the potential of a digital assistant, said Shrikant Sinha, Chief Executive Officer of TASK.
