(FedScoop) George Washington it the name of a bot that is hard at work in the NASA Shared Services Center at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. This George Washington is adept at doing rote, repetitive work quickly and consistently and never complains. George Washington is a bot.
NASA first started looking into bots about two years ago, according to Jim Walker, head of robotic process automation at the NASA Shared Services Center. The center isn’t exactly the sexiest part of the space agency, and while the work done in Building 1111 may be characterized by lots of bookkeeping and organizational tasks, it is nonetheless important. This, in Walker’s estimation, made NSSC the perfect place to test process robotics.
