This paper presents Robidium: a tool that discovers au- tomatable routine tasks from User Interactions (UI) logs and generates Robotic Process Automation (RPA) scripts to automate such routines. Unlike record-and-replay features provided by commercial RPA tools, Robidium may take as input an UI log that is not specifically recorded to capture a pre-identified task. Instead, the log may contain mixtures of automatable and non-automatable routines, interspersed with events that are not part of any routine as well as redundant or irrelevant events.
