On January 24, speakers from Genworth Financial Insurance came to present at Pizza My Mind. Genworth Financial Insurance is a company dedicated to helping people maintain financial security as they age. In addition, they also have numerous projects to work on developing new technologies. Throughout the presentation, opened by college relations officer Emma Duncan, the primary technological focus was RPA, or Robotic Process Automation.
The goal of RPA implementations is to get work done in a safer and more efficient way than humans can achieve. In the example provided, a human user took around five minutes longer to complete a simple web based task than their AI counterpart. The application of AI as a whole is a major part of RPA development and can lead to countless possibilities as developers are freed up to do more complex tasks. Some examples of RPA’s include self driving cars, pattern recognition, Google Maps, and Alexa. You can visit their website for more information if you are interested in the development and use of this technology.
Genworth hosts paid internships as well as a postgraduate six month rotational IT development program. The six month program is designed so new employees can experience a variety of different roles at the company. This allows them to find out what kind of projects they are passionate about and lets them decide which team they want to be a part of. Interns at the company will be working on full and critical projects that will provide valuable experience. Full time positions are also available.
