With almost every company out there working with physical or virtual documents, intelligent document processing has unlimited potential. At the same time, every project involving structured and unstructured data is unique because of aspects like the format of the inputs and the type of data to be extracted. This is why it requires a specific skillset from Automation Developers and unique Artificial Intelligence capabilities, needed to create automation projects which process unstructured communications data, digitize and classify documents, as well as extract and process data from them.

Specialized AI Professional responsibilities

The responsibilities are the same as for a non-specialized Automation Developer – see them below. It's just that they apply to automation projects involving intelligent document processing.

  • Work with the Solution Architect and the Business Analyst to sign off on the business automation and technical requirements.
  • Contribute to the automation solution designs.
  • Develop automation projects and components according to the solution design and the requirements.
  • Adhere to the development methodologies and best practices.
  • Test the code units and work with the Tester and the Test Automation Engineer for the other testing stages. Fix the bugs identified in the process.
  • Participate in production deployment, hypercare, and monitoring.
  • Create the technical documentation for the automations developed, according to the best practices.
  • Review code written by peers and facilitate knowledge transfer.

  • The UiPath Automation Implementation Methodology.
  • In-depth knowledge of the Automate pillar of the UiPath Platform: Studio, Apps, Integration Service, Robots, Action Center, and Data Service.
  • In-depth knowledge of UiPath Orchestrator
  • UiPath templates e.g., the UiPath Robotic Enterprise Framework.
  • UiPath solution accelerators, available on the UiPath Marketplace.
Specific to Specialized AI:
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning general concepts.
  • Ability to differentiate Specialized AI from Generative AI, and knowledge of how each can be used.
  • In-depth knowledge of UiPath Communications Mining.

Specialized AI Professional career path

The Specialized AI skillset comes on top of the Automation Developer core expertise. So, start as an Automation Developer, get the Associate certification and start implementing automation projects. Once you feel in control of those, go towards Specialized AI.

If you aren’t familiar at all with Automation Developers, these typically come from tech-savvy individuals with a good understanding of the basic programming concepts and ideally 1-2 years of experience as a software engineer or education in computer science. Being a role closely tied to business, analytical thinking and problem-solving are crucial.

As a specialization, Specialized AI Professional doesn't have seniority levels. However, depending on the seniority as an Automation Developer, the Specialized AI Professional skillset can be put to better use in more complex projects involving digitized documents.

What is my learning journey as an Automation Developer with Specialized AI?

If you're totally new to automation development, start with a course on coding concepts and fundamentals, ideally with C# or VB.NET, but it can also be something else, like Python or Java. Currently UiPath Academy doesn't offer such courses, but with a bit of research you can find one which suits your interests and current expertise.
