Ronak Mathur

Automation Architect, Mater Hospital

I am a Software professional carrying 4+ years of experience specialising in Robotics Process Automation. I possess a strong track record in end-to-end implementation of RPA solutions, working closely with business SMEs across different industries including Finance, Health and others to identify, qualify opportunities, improve business processes and deploy emerging technologies. I believe that most of the business processes which are mundane can be automated but lack of awareness and education among businesses about robots limits the use of automation. I have focused on stakeholder engagement and education of RPA within the business to clarify all misconceptions regarding the bots. This has helped the organisation to scale up the automation and resulted in successful implementation of complex bots.

I completed my Masters in Information Technology majoring in Data Science from Queensland University of Technology, Australia. I have used the skills of AI and Machine Learning gained from University to scale up the automation journey to Intelligent Automation. Currently, working as a Automation Architect in Mater hospital and exploring the opportunities of Automation in Healthcare. Passionate about the socio-economic opportunities presented by emerging technologies, I enjoy collaborating with organisations aspiring to shape and pioneer the “tech for good” agenda and volunteering my time to support initiatives aimed to address key societal challenges such as digital divide, diversity in STEM, and sustainable innovation. During my University days, I led one of the prominent student clubs as President and helped the community in building the ecosystem of Data Science and AI in Queensland. This has helped more than 300 members of the club and other participants across Australia. I have done a few great collaborations with industries such as Australian Computer Society (ACS) during the tenure, that has helped the students and wider community in Queensland. My passion for the community continues after the Uni days and my prior experience has helped me to take the opportunity to lead Queensland AI Labs as Chief Operating Officer. QLD AI Labs focuses on building the stronger community of Artificial Intelligence in QLD and conducts various technical challenges which are real world problems.

I am a mentor of University students and share my industrial experience and guide them on their journey of Intelligent Automation, AI and Machine Learning . My expertise in the field has given me the opportunity to be a guest speaker in various national and International conferences. Few of them are listed below:

  • Guest Speaker at QUT to deliver a lecture on Intelligent Automation in the enterprise.
