Two organizations within the Department of Defense (DOD) partnered to automate financial transactions via machine learning technology, FedScoop reported Tuesday.
These complex tasks include tracking unmatched or wrongly labeled transactions, a problem that DOD says takes too much time. Eric Dorsey, a program manager for DIU's AI portfolio, said DOD has been using RPAs that are limited to basic “if-then-else” applications.
ML augments RPA with processed information based on financial data. This allows RPA to perform more complex tasks, such as correcting unmatched transactions.
