After the initial hype on RPA, companies have more realistic expectations of this technology. Its current mature vision relegates the end-to-end robotic automation to a less suitable place and considers the human-robot collaboration as the most natural way for automating robotic processes in real-world settings. This hybrid RPA implies a vertical s...

Process automation typically begins with the observation of humans conducting the tasks that will be eventually automated. Similarly, successful RPA projects require a prior analysis of the undergoing processes which are being executed by humans. The process of collecting this type of information is known as user interface (UI) logging since it rec...

Medium and big organizations have embraced RPA in the last years bringing to light the high maturity of the technology. Current trends are towards including “human-in-the-loop” which promotes efficient ways for robot-human interaction. This is especially relevant since most real RPA projects require a collaboration between the human and the robot l...

Project
SmartAuditor is a multidisciplinary project supported by Junta de Andalucía (Consejería de Economía, Conocimiento, Empresas y Universidad), Spain. In this project we propose a MDE solution to automatically tests software development in the context of Smart Contracts and Blockchain. For the validation of our results, we collaborate with a set of researchers from Faculty of Economy developing a tool for promoting self-employment
Project
The quality assurance of the software is a line of work that has been developing for many years but that every day acquires more importance because the Information and communication Technologies (ICT) are increasingly present in our lives . Nowadays, if a software wants to be competitive, it has to cover in the most efficient way possible all the requirements that users demand and it has to guarantee, in addition, a robustness and consistency of the data they handle. The SiTPGa project aims to find mechanisms that guarantee the quality of software products from the earliest stages of the life cycle. The research carried out has three main work focuses: (1) Software testing, which pilots early tests on both functional and non-functional requirements as well as data testing. (2) The effective inclusion of the user in the earliest stages of the software and very specifically in the business process environment in order to correctly define the flexibility, adaptability and possible robotization thereof (RPA-Robotic Process Automation) (3) Gamification, developing solutions aimed at improving the skills of stakeholders to make the production of quality software more effective. The project consists of three subprojects led by the University of Seville, the University of Oviedo and the University of Cádiz in which staff from 22 different organizations participate and have the support of 33 entities interested in the results of the project as well as with the collaboration of 13 international doctors of high prestige. A high scientific-technological impact of the same is foreseen as well as a notable social impact since it is oriented towards the challenges of society and more specifically that of Economy and Digital Society.
