As ChatGPT continues to take the world by storm, the debate surrounding artificial intelligence research is intensifying, with leaders like Elon Musk calling for a pause.

Today, we are thrilled to cover this highly debated topic as we are joined by Brandon Deer, Chief Strategy Officer at UiPath, a leading provider of enterprise automation software.

Brandon discusses the company's robotic process automation (RPA) technology, its competitive advantages, and how it can help businesses save time, energy, and costs. He also shares his insights on how AI and automation can streamline workflows and take on mundane tasks without displacing human jobs in the long term. Finally, Brandon walks us through three layers of UiPath's AI-practice-oriented processes and third-party integrations that differentiate the company from its competitors, revealing UiPath's business case and competitive moat based on its deep expertise in automation and experience working with heavily regulated industries such as banking and healthcare.

Brandon is also a co-founder and General Partner at Crew Capital, a venture capital firm investing in entrepreneurs building category-defining technology companies. He has been a prolific angel investor and has supported dozens of companies, including Expensify, BetterUp, Cedar and Chainalysis, to name a few. Enjoy!
