NICE AI and Robotics Technology Reduces Complexities for Key UK Government Agency
NICE today announced that a key government agency in the United Kingdom chose NICE Advanced Process Automation technologies as part of its strategy to improve organizational efficiency and accuracy. In one of the most complex automation projects for which NICE advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics technology has ever been used, the agency is collecting and coordinating data from 19 different systems across the organization as part of its digital transformation strategy. In addition, the integration of NICE advanced AI and robotic automation makes it possible for the agency to annually streamline tens of millions of transactions, process more than 28 million pages of hand-written forms, and provide thousands of advisors with real-time guidance for interactions with the public.

Given the scope and scale of the authority’s activities, a growing population, periodically changing legislation and the need for resiliency in the face of crises, this department required an agile, highly scalable and flexible solution. The unique NICE combination of advanced AI and unattended automation was determined to be the best option for eliminating cumbersome, time-consuming tasks, boosting productivity and improving operations. Moreover, NICE’s technology is especially well-suited to the public sector where resiliency has become a non-negotiable.

Hundreds of NICE robots automate and support a wide array of processes across the agency, including administrative tasks, data gathering, communication with customers and regulatory compliance. For example, NICE technology is helping the authority process self-service applications for payment arrangements, update changes in circumstances in multiple systems, correct errors, coordinate diverse sources of data, and more. In addition, the NICE employee virtual attendant (NEVA) provides employees contextually relevant guidance during live interactions and assists with huge seasonal surges in frontline contacts. It can also quickly combine disparate systems and adjust processes on the fly to address rapidly changing needs.

In order to automate the processing of millions of pages of hand-written forms, the government agency implemented an integration of NICE automation solutions and the Hyperscience Platform, which delivers industry-leading intelligent document processing capabilities. The authority selected the Hyperscience-NICE joint solution after a “bake-off” pilot against major global competitors, during which it was found to be the most accurate and versatile. Across multiple types of forms with over 400 fields, the combined technologies demonstrated 99.4 percent reading accuracy -- which is above the 95 percent human accuracy level -- and 100 percent automation of data extraction and export.

“We are pleased to meet this important government agency’s need for a robust, innovative robotic process automation solution that saves time, improves productivity and provides greater flexibility. Leveraging our technology with the power of Hyperscience, this agency has seen a significant return on investment through efficiencies that free up resources, reduce complexities and streamline the organization’s multiple self-service options.”

John O’Hara, President, NICE EMEA

NICE Advanced Process Automation solutions are increasingly becoming the technology of choice for public sector organizations embarking on a digital transformation journey as they mechanize their operations and uncomplicate repetitive tasks. For example, NEVA provides real-time, dynamic support, such as retrieving information the frontline agent needs, when they need it, and then assisting with any routine follow-up actions. Similarly, it can ensure that change of circumstances information received through multiple channels is automatically proliferated across relevant documentation. In addition to streamlining these processes, NICE automation solutions free employees to focus on the personal touch that is critical to ensure exceptional customer experiences.

Terrestrial Energy Awarded US Government Grant for IMSR Development

Terrestrial Energy | November 26, 2021

Terrestrial Energy USA was awarded a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support licensing and commercialization of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR), a Generation IV nuclear power plant. The largest of the DOE awards announced Nov. 18, the award supports modeling and simulation for the off-gas systems of the IMSR power plant, supporting the company’s regulatory program for U.S. NRC licensing. “Advanced reactors will completely change the way we engineer, build, and operate nuclear reactors,” said Dr. Kathryn Huff, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy, in a press release announcing the awards. “These awards support technical and regulatory strides necessary for commercializing new carbon-free nuclear technologies poised to help our nation reach net-zero emissions by 2050.” Terrestrial Energy is developing its IMSR Generation IV small modular reactor (SMR) power plant for commercial deployment in the late 2020s and is engaged with regulators in the United States and Canada. The Generation IV molten salt technology used by the IMSR power plant delivers a 50 percent increase in the thermal efficiency of electric power generation compared to power plants that use conventional – water-moderated-water-cooled –reactor technology. This provides a step-change improvement in the economics of nuclear power generation while preserving nuclear energy’s carbon-free and resiliency advantages over other energy sources. “We value this grant and the Department of Energy’s support as we work to license and commercialize the IMSR nuclear power plant in the United States. It is encouraging that DOE sees the potential of Generation IV technologies and the IMSR. These grant programs support private companies as they work to deliver nuclear power technologies that can succeed in competitive global energy markets and deliver global net-zero goals. Technologies such as our IMSR Generation IV nuclear plants will produce reliable, cost-competitive heat and power without emissions, making them uniquely capable of competing with fossil fuels.” Terrestrial Energy USA CEO Simon Irish About Terrestrial Energy USA Terrestrial Energy USA, based in Charlotte, NC, is developing the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) for U.S. market deployment. The IMSR is a non-Light Water Reactor that uses Generation IV technology to generate electricity 50 percent more efficiently than conventional – water-moderated-water-cooled – nuclear reactor technology. The IMSR represents a step-change improvement in economics, versatility and functionality of nuclear power plants that is possible only with Generation IV technology. IMSR power plants will provide resilient, reliable, dispatchable, zero-carbon and cost-competitive electric power, as well as high-grade industrial heat for use in many industrial applications, such as chemical synthesis, hydrogen production and desalination, and in so doing extend the application of nuclear energy far beyond electric power markets. IMSR power plants have the potential to make important contributions to industrial competitiveness, energy security, and economic growth.
