Difference between action center and AI

what will be the major difference between these 2? how we can use them.

I am not aware about anything.


The main difference is that Action Center is a UiPath platform component for human-in-the-loop automation, while AI encompasses various technologies for machine learning and cognitive automation; you can use Action Center to assign, manage, and track tasks, while AI can be used for tasks like natural language processing, image recognition, and decision-making in automation processes.

Aspect Action Center AI in Automation
Purpose Human-in-the-loop automation management Automation using artificial intelligence
Functionality Task assignment, tracking, and management Advanced automation, decision-making, and data processing
Use Case Handling exceptions, approvals, and escalations Natural language processing, image recognition, predictive analytics, and cognitive automation
Examples Handling validation tasks, approvals, and escalations Invoice data extraction, chatbots, predictive maintenance
Integration Integrated within UiPath platform for task management Integration with ML models, APIs, and third-party AI services
User Involvement Requires human input and decision-making Automated decision-making based on AI algorithms
Benefit Enhances human-robot collaboration and process handling Optimizes automation efficiency, accuracy, and decision-making
Human Role Human users interact directly with Action Center tasks Human users often provide training data or intervene for AI improvements

Action Center

Action Center is primarily an operational component of UiPath Orchestrator, which is UiPath’s RPA (Robotic Process Automation) platform. It is a platform feature that is used to manage and monitor human-in-the-loop actions within automated workflows.

AI (Artificial Intelligence)

AI refers to the broader field of computer science and technology that aims to create intelligent systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. It encompasses a wide range of technologies and techniques, including machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and more.


Hello @babita,

  • Action Center in UiPath: UiPath’s Action Center is a component within the UiPath Automation Cloud platform. It provides a centralized location for managing and monitoring your automation tasks and queues. Users can interact with the Action Center to take action on items that require attention or review.
  • AI in UiPath: UiPath also supports the integration of AI and machine learning capabilities within automation workflows. You can use AI for tasks like data extraction, natural language processing (NLP), image recognition, and decision-making. This can make your automation workflows more intelligent and capable of handling complex, data-driven tasks.

Cheers! :slight_smile:
