Let’s say we want to single out Yellow Pages links. InStr looks for one string inside another, using the format InStr(haystack, needle) and returns the numerical starting point of the first occurence of needle, or 0 if not found. If ‘yp’ or ‘yellowpages’ is found in a link we make the interior of the cell red with the .ColorIndex VBA property, and place a ‘1’ in the cell to the left. FYI, short and simple If...Then statements, like this one: If x = y Then Debug.print "Yo, x is the same as y, bro!", can be written on one line with the closing End If ommitted. If...Then statements are the backbone of any great A.I. … Watson, Wall-E, and now SearchBot()!

Research by Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne of the Oxford Martin School argued that employees engaged in "tasks following well-defined procedures that can easily be performed by sophisticated algorithms" are at risk of displacement, and 47 per cent of jobs in the US were at risk. The study, released as a working paper in 2013 and published in 2017, predicted that automation would put low-paid physical occupations most at risk, by surveying a group of colleagues on their opinions.[91] However, according to a study published in McKinsey Quarterly[92] in 2015 the impact of computerization in most cases is not replacement of employees but automation of portions of the tasks they perform.[93] The methodology of the McKinsey study has been heavily criticized for being intransparent and relying on subjective assessments.[94] The methodology of Frey and Osborne has been subjected to criticism, as lacking evidence, historical awareness, or credible methodology.[95][96] In addition the OCED, found that across the 21 OECD countries, 9% of jobs are automatable.[97]
Many roles for humans in industrial processes presently lie beyond the scope of automation. Human-level pattern recognition, language comprehension, and language production ability are well beyond the capabilities of modern mechanical and computer systems (but see Watson (computer)). Tasks requiring subjective assessment or synthesis of complex sensory data, such as scents and sounds, as well as high-level tasks such as strategic planning, currently require human expertise. In many cases, the use of humans is more cost-effective than mechanical approaches even where automation of industrial tasks is possible. Overcoming these obstacles is a theorized path to post-scarcity economics.
IFTTT est  la référence des outils permettant d’automatiser ses actions sur le web. Mais il n’a pas le monopole : Zapier constitue une alternative efficace. Si vous avez l’habitude d’utiliser IFTTT, vous ne serez pas perdu, car les interfaces sont similaires. Zapier fonctionne de la même manière : vous choisissez un déclencheur et l’action à effectuer lorsque le trigger est activé. Les recettes peuvent être partagées et vous pouvez parcourir celles créées par la communauté. Les services supportés sont très nombreux. Certains sont payants, mais ce ne sont pas les plus utilisés au quotidien : Evernote Business, HubSpot, MySQL, PayPal… Les comptes gratuits sont limités, contrairement à IFTTT : 100 tâches par mois, 5 recettes au maximum et un checking des déclencheurs toutes les 15 minutes uniquement. 

Yes, you can do this. Read the material linked in the below answers, and try to make a start on the project. Use google to search for solutions to your problems (there are a lot of python recipes out there, and the official python.org docs have a wealth of information), and look for existing answers here that match your problem. Once you are stuck, come here and ask a concrete question with a clear, concise, and complete example including your code, and the problematic input and output. Good luck, and happy coding! – Marcin Mar 30 '12 at 14:55

This is the opening statement in our action-packed For...Next loop, where the procedure seeks out each aEle (link) object that’s found in the collection of all objects on the page that have a class of result__a (again I used Firebug to locate this particular class name to target). For each match found, we temporarily assign it to the aEle variable and do the following with it…
Au quotidien, nous réalisons de nombreuses tâches sur Internet. Si la plupart d’entre elles sont singulières, certaines tâches récurrentes dépendent de paramètres simples et répétitifs. Nous allons donc vous présenter IFTTT, Zapier et Wappwolf, trois services web permettant d’automatiser ses actions sur Internet. Dans bien des cas, ces outils permettent de gagner du temps. Mais ils sont à utiliser avec parcimonie, notamment sur les réseaux sociaux. L’automatisation des tâches n’est ni une bonne ni une mauvaise chose en soi, tout dépend de son utilisation. Récupérer les photos publiées sur les réseaux sociaux peut être utile par exemple, alors que partager le contenu de 20 flux RSS automatiquement n’est pas forcément recommandé. À vous de juger !

Si vous pensez aux tâches en ligne que vous réalisez, il y a probablement des actions qui viennent à l’esprit et pour lesquels le logiciel serait très utile pour mais qui ne serait simplement pas commercialisable ou rentable pour un développeur. Ces actions seraient trop spécifiques pour en justifier le développement d’un logiciel pour les executer.
As demands for safety and mobility have grown and technological possibilities have multiplied, interest in automation has grown. Seeking to accelerate the development and introduction of fully automated vehicles and highways, the United States Congress authorized more than $650 million over six years for intelligent transport systems (ITS) and demonstration projects in the 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA). Congress legislated in ISTEA that "the Secretary of Transportation shall develop an automated highway and vehicle prototype from which future fully automated intelligent vehicle-highway systems can be developed. Such development shall include research in human factors to ensure the success of the man-machine relationship. The goal of this program is to have the first fully automated highway roadway or an automated test track in operation by 1997. This system shall accommodate installation of equipment in new and existing motor vehicles." [ISTEA 1991, part B, Section 6054(b)].
Les nombreux éditeurs d’outils de tests fonctionnels ont des approches différentes. On constate que certains offrent un référentiel contenant une collection d’objets-types que le produit est susceptible de rencontrer dans la majorité des cas. D’un autre côté, certains préfèrent initialiser le référentiel uniquement avec les objets reconnus et utilisés par les différents cas de tests.
I used Firebug to find the ID of the search button (magnifying glass) on the page, then used .getElementById again to grab it, and the .Click method to click it. Alternatively, we could have submitted the search box form like this instead objIE.document.getElementById("search_form_homepage").Submit. Actually, there’s a simpler method still that would allow us to skip the previous 3 steps altogether. Can you see it? Hint: take a look at the url we ended up with… https://duckduckgo.com/?q=auto+parts+in+Houston+TX. Got it? If you still don’t see it, and you don’t think you’ll be able to sleep tonight, email me 🙂
