In this article about how robots are moving up to take on both menial paperwork and complex data analysis, Alejandro González and Pedro Fernández-Olano, authors of the Arthur D. Little report "Defining the Digital Organization," are quoted as saying they do not foresee widespread use of robotics in banking in the short term, particularly in corporate banking, which often requires more complex interactions with customers. But they recognize that sophisticated software algorithms-or software robots, for that matter-doing more of the grunt work on the back end could be useful. "Banks would be able to do things more efficiently and not lose money in irrelevant customer marketing campaigns," says Gonzalez.
