NEW YORK, June 21, 2022 -- Roots Automation, a global intelligent automation company, announced the addition of Ratish Dalvi to its executive team as Head of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

In his new role, Dalvi will lead the data science and machine learning team to further advance the breadth and depth of Roots Automation’s market-leading AI capabilities – specifically around Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing (NLP) – enabling customers to automate a wider range of complex business processes.

Prior to joining Roots Automation, Dalvi was Head of Data Science for Quartet Health, a tech-enabled mental health provider that connects mental healthcare professionals with their patients. Dalvi has worked in data science and machine learning for over a decade, leading teams across this growing space. Dalvi was a data scientist in startups that were later acquired – one such company,, was acquired by GE Digital – as well as organizations within the growing fields of telehealth and healthcare technology.

“Roots Automation is growing at a pace I’ve rarely seen before,” said Dalvi. “I joined the organization because I see huge potential for growth – not just within the company, but in what our core product – the Digital Coworker – is capable of delivering for our customers”.

“We have a lot of very cool, market-leading projects on the roadmap already. The most exciting one for me personally is something we are calling Digital Vision - an advanced AI system that combines computer vision with natural language processing to, in essence, understand and interact with a applications, systems, documents and data on a computer screen, the same way a human would,” Dalvi added. “This is fundamentally different, better than the current way that other technologies interact with computer screens. Digital Vision doesn’t require constant configuration or tweaking due to screen elements moving around, it is able to intelligently adapt its logic and adjust accordingly. This is a critical component that sets our Digital Coworker apart from other automation solutions.”

“Ratish’s vision for our core Digital Coworker product is future-forward and customer-centric,” said John Cottongim, CTO. “With his addition, we continue to expand the Digital Coworker’s abilities. Every day, we’re one step closer to creating a future of work where organizations never need to choose between efficiency, scale or employee experience.”
