Hero Cloud

Cloud Released With Free Credits

Hero_Cloud is now available for general access. At sign up, you will receive $200 of credit for your first two weeks of use. Sign up is available at: https://cloud.automationhero.ai

Flow Studio

Flow Recovery

Hero_Flow now offers a recovery mode to retain your work when you have made changes to a Flow and you didn't save the changes. Your changes will also be saved if the system times out.

The Flow Recovery feature will notify you if you have unsaved changes with a dialog:

  • If you start to edit a Flow with unsaved changes, you will receive the dialog asking: “Flow has unsaved changes. Do you want to recover that work?”

  • If you close the Flow editor with unsaved changes, you will receive the dialog asking: ‘Flow is unsaved. Do you want to save it?’

You can then choose to discard or retain changes as needed.

Connectors

Extend SSH Connection Definition to Store Private Key/Password Recovery

Public key authentication is now available to support the SSH connector client. You will have to supply a pair of key (both public and private) in order to enable successful authentication.

Two fields support the SSH dialog:  

  • private key - either binary or base64

  • password - which is encrypted in transit

Flow Studio Functions

Containerized Functions

With the addition of containerized functions, you can now upload Docker container images to the platform so they can be used as functions in a Flow. You will be required to map the input and output fields defined in the Docker containers.

Custom Javascript as Functions   

You can now build custom Javascript functions.

When building custom Javascript functions, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Parameters are used when defining a function. They are the names created in the Javascript function definition.

  • Arguments are the values the function receives from each parameter when the function is executed.

  • Functions are executed when they are called in a Flow.

  • The Javascript function always returns a value. If no return value is specified, the function will return undefined by default.

Read Data from PDFs in a Flow and Generate Charts

You can now access data from PDFs in an SSH File system and use the Javascript function to interpret values as a chart. PDFs that contain values can also have that data identified by the Input parser, then expressed as a chart when sinking the result back to an Input. You can now specify input fields and their values to generate Pie Charts, Histograms or Bar Charts using the Javascript capability in the application.

AI Studio

AI Studio was released in fall 2019.

Recap: Model Builder

You can design and build AI Models in AI Studio, a point-and-click interface for building classification models.

Model Training

After building an AI Model, you can now train the model by clicking Train Now.

Multiple versions can be trained simultaneously. New line charts provide you with context on progress and the loss metric for every epoch.

Automatic Versioning

AI Studio provides model versioning built-in, so anytime a new change in model layout is detected, a new version is available for training.

Model Performance Comparison

The Training Dashboard gives you visual indicators on how classification models perform during training. 

The dashboard tracks the performance of your trained models and your models that are actively training.

Hero_Go - Screen Automations

Pagination for Loop Over Similar

You can now inform Hero_Go how to paginate. This is an optional step. 

Contextual Drop-down Menu Selector

You can now easily extract and fill in values from a drop-down list. Hero_Go will recognize when the value you fill in is not available in the target drop-down and notify you of the best action to take under these circumstances.
