Robotic Conductor of Business Operations Software
This patent is a single patent without any prior art and no portfolio issue involved as it has pioneered a breakthrough in AI (Artificial Intelligence) oriented "Machine Rules Man" technology first time ever in the history of computing. Therefore, there may be some reservation in buyer's mind about its market demand at present, although the practicality and benefits even under present day conditions are substantiated by the very fact of granting patent by the USPTO. From the strategic point of view, however, acquiring rights to this patent by a software company or traders of the patent market at present can be an extremely valuable decision due to inevitably emerging AI technology Oriented robotic computerised systems in the near future for initiating and managing business processes dominating relevant human staff for improving efficiency and effectiveness. Therefore, even if this patent is not used immediately by building the finished product for selling in the market, its ownership will deter the competitors of its buyer from using this technology before the buyer’s use or disposal.
Another aspect of the patent to keep in mind is its outstanding universality as the number of potential end users of the patent is stupendous running into millions because all organisations of any kind of industry or trade or Government departments, stand to benefiting from its use to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness.
This patent is for the invention of a computerized fully automated control system operating in 24x7 real time, taking full responsibility of automatically and robotically conducting regular day-to-day defined business operations of any organisation with related structured business activities thereof which are processes and events that follow each other in a particular order to meet particular business goals.
The underlying “Machine Rules Man” technology of the invention has also made a breakthrough in Artificial Intelligence (AI) oriented technology and introduced an unprecedented scenario in which among the two types of business operators in an organisation, humans and a real time computerized fully automated system, the latter is in the driving seat in robotically initiating and managing the business operational activities particularly the processes by dictating, monitoring, reporting and controlling performance of relevant human operators of the business, a phenomenon not yet known to the world. Yet, the originality, practicality and benefits of this invention even under present day conditions are substantiated by the very fact of granting the patent by the USPTO.
This technological breakthrough can pave the way for inevitably emerging powerful AI oriented robotic computerized systems of the future dominating humans. To cite an example, the invention of radio patented by Marconi in 1897 also introduced the underlying wireless communication technology which was much more significant than the invention of radio itself, and is still thriving and improving.
On September 9, 2019, The White House hosted a Summit on Artificial Intelligence in Government. The Summit was about how the Federal government can adopt AI to achieve its mission and improve services to the American people. In the context of AI Center of Excellence model proposed in the summit, AI oriented technology has acquired a special significance and, therefore, this breakthrough in AI technology can pave the way for inevitably emerging many more powerful AI oriented computerized robotic systems of the future dominating humans to improve efficiency. Hence, this patent will be very valuable in near future for application of this breakthrough technology, particularly in the USA, the major country of software companies.
The pre-requisite of this breakthrough in AI oriented technology is full automation of the computerized system, which is accomplished by a method similar to “Servomechanism Principle” of Control Engineering system which was a forerunner for automation of mechanical instruments. The “Servomechanism Principle” works by generating “Feedback” from within itself based on error signal that is the deviation of the current state from the target which is then applied to guide the next movement of the mechanical instrument automatically and continuously until the target is reached. This principle has been suitably adapted for operation of this non-mechanical robotic computerized system by generating “Feedback” automatically from within itself for identifying and managing the next process by sending commands to the relevant human operators of the business automatically via a Human Interface Gateway module, first time in the history of computing.
Generation of “Feedback” automatically from within itself about what and how to conduct the next business process under variable conditions is a kind of AI which the system is taught with a built-in automated mechanism by prompting user organisation at the time of installation to feed the necessary AI information about their business operation policy and rules to the system. This AI information is embedded in its own dataset enabling generation of “Feedback” for conducting the next business activity automatically under variable condition prevailing at that point in time by updating its dataset dynamically. Another part of AI is sought during live operation of the system from the relevant authorities of user organisation about the steps to be taken if human operators fail to complete a job within normal time limit, by automatically counting the elapsed time and communicating with them through the same Human Interface Gateway module.
The automated robotic system, therefore, is placed in a very advantageous position because it knows what to do and how to conduct the next business activity under variable conditions at the earliest opportunities during 24x7 real time operation fully automatically devoid of any prompt or interference from human operators and without need for any break or holiday. This advantage gives it a superior power than humans in either automatically doing some processing jobs by itself instantly with installed automated processing programs or robotically dictating human operators involved in the business processes to do the job at the earliest opportunities and then monitoring, reporting and controlling their performance by counting elapsed time and communicating with higher authorities whenever needed with the minimum of time lag in 24x7 real time. This is not possible by managers with natural biological and social barriers and, therefore, pioneers a radical change in the history of computing.
Specifically an example of a business operation can be “Sell a product or products” that may have the following structured sequence of business activities:
(1) Receive an order (Event).
(2) Check stock against order (Process with variable outcome e.g. In stock or Not in stock).
(3) If in stock, then subsequent business activities such as updating accounting database, invoicing, packing and dispatching.
(4) If not in stock then subsequent business activities such as updating accounting database, communicating to customer etc.
Each process is either performed automatically by the system itself with an installed computer program such as “Check stock against order” or by dictating concerned human operators with an alert to perform the process manually such as “Pack and dispatch” and then monitoring and controlling their performance by counting elapsed time and communicating automatically with the designated authorities if processing is not completed within normal time limit via Human Interface Gateway Module.
The business processes also include updating the accounting databases which is a very important business activity and a matter of great concern for every organisation, because timely update of their accounting databases is very crucial being intrinsically related to meet their other business needs in good time. For that reason the processes for updating accounting databases at different points in the course of their business activities are managed in a special category of processes by this robotic system.
As a matter of fact, the clients of widely used accounting databases such as ORACLE, SAP, SAGE and others should be enjoying immense benefits from using this software as bonus for timely updating of accounting databases in addition to getting the core benefits from automatic and robotic management and control of their business operational activities.
This system will complement other ERP related software products if already installed by the user organisation and conversely will be facilitated by any installed process automation tools which will be executed automatically and instantly by it.
Please note that the volume of potential end-users of this product is stupendous running up to millions because all organisations of any kind of industry or trade or Government Departments will be benefiting by using this robotic system for improving their operational efficiency substantially.
For this epoch-making patent introducing a “Machine Rules Man” technology first time ever, there is no prior art and portfolio issue involved.
